Château de Pennautier

AOC CABARDÈS - VINS DE PAYS D’OC
VINS DE PAYS DE LA CITÉ DE CARCASSONNE

A history…

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 vineyard has been entirely refurbished since 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. They took over in 1987.
 

… and a terroir !

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.
The views from up there are breathtaking: at a glance, you can see the entire Pyrenean mountain range to the south, the Massif Central to the north, and the famous town of Carcassonne just a few miles away.

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.
