Domaine de Pourthié 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. Domaine des Pourthié has recently been updated with modern equipment, leading to more sophisticated methods of vinification. These are classically styled Languedoc wines.
A deeply coloured Cabernet Sauvignon with pronounced aromas of blackcurrant, black cherries and subtle notes of coffee. Smooth and velvety, the tannins are beautifully integrated and envelop the spicy fruit through to a deliciously smoky finish.
Deeply coloured and vibrant, this is full of sweet berry fruits, with hints of capsicum and coffee on the nose and palate. A structured wine with smooth tannins and a pleasantly long finish.
