A.O.P. Cabardès
A.O.P. Cabardès  

The Cabardès region is situated to the west of Languedoc and to the south of the central massif, a geologist's dream, balanced between east and west, the sun and the coolness, the heathland and the mountain. It is here that the winds cross. They bring the intense mediterranean heat necessary for southern "cépages" (grape types) such as syrah and grenache, and the cool atlantic humidity for the ocean "cépages": merlot, cabernet-sauvignon, cabernet-franc, cot and fer-servadou, to prosper. The vineyards and wines of Cabardès have been recognized as AOC-AOP since february 1999. The quality of the grapes, the wine-making, the blending of the "cépages" and the keeping of the wines has allowed us to obtain the best balance between fruit and structure, fullness and complexity, intensity and elegance. Cabardès assembles 30 châteaux and domaines over 500 productive hectares spread amongst 18 villages. 20000 hectolitres are produced each year,of which 60% are exported.

There are no less than six rivers irrigating the slopes of this amphitheatre built right up against the Montagne Noire. Facing south, this area dominates the city of Carcassonne. The Cabardès slopes, along the Fresquel and the Trapel, are covered with limestone rocks helping to keep the ground cool. Moving up the hills, the principal stone is granite, then schist and gneiss. Exposed to easterly and westerly winds, this area is the meeting place of two climates, the soft influence of the Atlantic and the heat of the Mediterranean. These soils are at between 100 and 350 m above sea level.

A.O.P. Cabardès

At the beginning of our era, intense economic activity was shared in the Cabardès Country between timber from the chestnut and beech forests of the slopes of the Black Mountain, the iron and gold mines developed by the Romans and, of course, the olive-tree and the vine.The Middle Ages, alongside monastic construction, was a time for widespread vine plantation. During the XVIIIth century, the textile industry flourished as did tanneries and mining. The combination of several activities led to the creation of small properties alongside larger domaines in the Cabardes.The quality of Cabardès wines, evoked from the very start of the XIXe century by the Baron Trouvé, prefect of the French Empire, has been recognised over the last 10 years by many distinctions and especially by promotion to the AOC-AOP category confirmed in February 1999.
  Office de tourisme du Cabardès au Canal du Midi The Cabardés, both a Region and a Vineyard, bordered by the Canal du Midi in the south, is located between Carcassonne and the Pic de Nore (1210 m) on the gentle slopes of the Montagne Noire, in the heart of Languedoc between Toulouse and the Mediterranean. Here the vines drink up all the riches from the sun and the earth through the white stones of the chalky foothills. This terroir is composed of four different types of soil, granites and terraces in the south, chalky marl on the slopes and siliceous formations of the Montagne Noire to the North.

  assemblies with grenache, syrah, cinsault, carignan, lladoner pelut, mourvèdre; in some western AOC-AOP's evenso cabernet sauvignon, merlot and côt (malbec)

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.
