Domaine des Pourthie Merlot 2019
Domaine de Pourthie is an estate of 60 hectares, situated near Agde, a few kilometres from the Mediterranean. It is now in the hands of the fourth generation of the Pourthie family. The vineyards are located on a ridge formed during the Ice Age, where the soils are gravelly clay and limestone. The Mediterranean warmth and sea breezes combined with the terroir, help to ripen the grapes harmoniously and maximise their aromas. The winery has recently been updated with modern equipment, leading to more sophisticated methods of vinification. These are classically styled Languedoc wines.
Traditional with long maceration (15 days)
A deep vibrant colour with sweet berry fruit on the nose and palate. A well structured wine with soft balanced tannins and a pleasantly long finish.
Everyday Serving Suggestion
Domaine des Pourthie Merlot is best served with cold meats, cheese or simply enjoy a glass on its own.
