IGP d'Oc Domaine Py Vieilles Vignes (old vines) Merlot
30 year old vines produce this super-concentrated but very approachable Merlot that exhibits all the right plummy black fruit flavours and soft ripe tannins. A superb-value wine that punches well above it's price tag and looks the part too.
Originally a cooperative, Domaine Py after a large capital investment became privately owned in 2003. The domaine is situated in the commune of Douzens and converted to organics in 2008 and now the whole 89 hectares are certified organic. The traditional Corbières varieties of Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault & Carignan are planted along with old vine Merlot (30 yrs old) and Domaine Py produce a quality range of varietal IGP's & classic AOP Corbières wines.
