Producer

Established under Louis XIII in 1620, the Chateau de Pennautier forms the heart of the Lorgeril estate. The Domaine comprises of 340 hectares, mainly in the Cabardes region of northern Languedoc, close to the medieval city of Carcassonne. Miren and Nicolas de Lorgeril, direct descendants of the first Marquis de Pennautier, are the tenth generation of the family to make wine here.

Tasting Notes

From the sunny, south-facing lower slopes of la Montagne Noire with breath-taking views from all sides of the snow-capped Pyrenees, the Massif Central to the north and the famous medieval city of Carcassonne. The nose has classic hints of red berries and floral aromas. The palate is crisp and clean with raspberries, redcurrants and white blossom, well balanced with a fresh citrus acidity and a fruit forward finish.

Food

Serve chilled as an aperitif or with summer salads.
