“Château de Pennautier” Built under Louis XIII by Bernard de Pennautier, Treasurer of the States of Languedoc, Château de Pennautier (a historic monument) has been in the family since 1620. The Château itself was designed by Louis Le Vau, who also designed the Palace of Versailles.
The vineyard was fully renovated in the 1960s and the higher plots of land planted with vines. The direct heirs of the Pennautier family, Nicolas and Miren de Lorgeril are the 10th generation of winegrowers since the estate was founded.
In the heart of the Cabardès appellation, the vines grow on the sunny, rugged hillsides south of the Montagne Noire, set at an altitude of 200 to 400 metres. AOC Cabardès is a magical blend of Atlantic and Southern France varietals, combining the freshness and elegance of Bordeaux wines with the spice and the fruit typical of the South of France.
This terroir combines clay-limestone soils,the Mediterranean heat, an Atlantic influence and the coolness of the mountains. Many areas of garrigue and rock on the Montagne Noire include vines, up to an altitude of 400 metres.”
