Le Petit Pont Reserve Rouge.
Grenache, Cinsault, Merlot
An intriguing combination of grape varieties that breaks loads of rules, but no harm done here! Very juicy with plum and red fruit flavours. Soft tannins.

"Very accomplished and savoury blend of locals Grenache and Cinsault with Bordeaux's Merlot. Herbal highlights from the local wild lavender, rosemary and thyme. Serve with a tomato and garlic stew of white beans and smoked bacon."
Domaine Preignes le Vieux
The wine estate is situated at the north-west of Vias, separated from the sea by an old volcano, Roque Haute. Pierre Paul Riquet, who built the Canal du Midi, used the volcanic stone to built the structures along the Canal from Villeneuve les Béziers to Agde. The rest is clay and gravel. The Preigness gravel terraces correspond to the old alluvium of the Libron, brook which crossed the wine estate
