Domaine de Perdiguier
Situated just outside Béziers, this property owes its name to Jean Perdiguier, a treasurer to Charles V of France who awarded him the estate in 1375. Rather unfortunately, Monsieur Perdiguier was murdered just four years later, and so never got to enjoy this beautiful estate to the full. The castle is now a national monument and is owned by the Ferracci family.
Today, the 200-hectare estate is mostly dedicated to fruit trees and growing cereal grains, with just 25 hectares planted with vines. Eight varieties are planted, including small amounts of pinot noir, cinsault, syrah, chardonnay and petit verdot, however the majority of vines are cabernet sauvignon and merlot, which are very well suited to the terraces of warm, gravelly soils.
Of all the domaine’s cuvées, the one we particularly admire is En Auger, a cabernet-merlot blend that offers much better value than many found in Bordeaux.
