Domaine Py

Blanc 2016
Corbières AOP

3eme-cuvee

Estate bottled

The extreme North of the 'Corbières'

Between Narbonne and Carcassonne, the « Montagne d’Alaric » is a landmark one cannot miss from the motorway, at the extreme North of the Corbières.

In Douzens, at the foot of the mountain, Domaine Py is an old family property where Jean Pierre started elaborating his own Cuvees in 2003.

Major investments were made for the wine making : destemmers, pneumatic press, stainless steel vat, revamping of the old concrete vats. The last touch was a temperature controlled barrique cellar.
