Domaine Preignes le Vieux.
"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."
"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."
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
