Cabernet Sauvignon from the sunny south showing an abundance of blackberry fruit. Refined winemaking, with just a touch of oak, has reigned in the tannins, resulting in a rich and generous red.

Wine Makers

Preignes Le Vieux by Bruno and Jerome Vic

Standing over 6 foot tall and with perfect English, Jerome and Bruno Vic are one of our outstanding finds in the South of France. Jerome’s family have been making wine for 5 generations on their estate. They have managed to successfully marry tradition with developments in modern technology.

 

The estate is located close to Beziers, less than 15km from the Mediterranean. Positioned on the flat, with a mixture of red iron and sandy lime rich soil, the location is perfect for ripe fruit. All this is aided by the combination of the heat of south France and the cool prevaling winds from the sea. The breezes also bring with them the typical aromas of the garrigue - lavender, thyme and rosemary - which form part of the essence of these wines.

 

What makes Domaine Preignes le Vieux stand out is the persistent evolution; with 16 varieties grown on the Domaine they are constantly blending new and wonderful wines. Since 2006, the estate is certified 'Qualenvi', an initiative started by the federation of independent vignerons. It ensures traceability, protection of the environment and, in this case, delicious wine!

Press Reviews

"Savoury aromas of sausage meat. Classic Cabernet blackcurrant character with firm but friendly tannins and a local herbal garrigue accent of terroir. Loves roast lamb with rosemary and garlic." - Liam Campbell, The Irish Independent
