A deeply coloured Cabernet Sauvignon with pronounced aromas of blackcurrant and black cherries. The tannins are well integrated with a pleasant finish.
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 Pourthié 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.
Maceration (15 days), the grapes are pressed and fermentation takes place in a temperature controlled vat.
Delicious with grilled red meat, game and rich flavoursome sauces
