Wine Makers

Domaine 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

"The lighter side of Languedoc with easy smooth dark fruits and hints of spice. Perfect glugging wine to drink on its own, with grilled sausages or any other red meat." John Wilson, The Irish Times

"An exotic bouquet of meaty pork and purple-skinned fruits typifies Syrah. Delicious black-berry fruits with graphite mineral flavours. Barbecue sausages with a spicy, smoky sauce." Liam Campbell, Irish Independent.
