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.

- 46 hectares, with new grape varieties planted over the last 35 years, comprising 90 hectares AOC and 56 hectares Vin de Pays.
- 21 hectares of Cabernet, 5 of Carignan, 6 of Cinsault, 22 of Chardonnay, 4 of Cot, 21 of Grenache, 36 of Merlot, 2 of Sauvignon, 26 of Syrah and 3 of Viognier: a stunning combination of grape varieties!
- 6 kilometres north-west of Carcassonne.
- 230 meter, this is the altitude of Pennautier, although its vines grow much higher up in the Cabardès appellation.

  With each generation since 1620, our coat of arms etched into the Pennautier stone has epitomised the style of southern Châteaux. Our family has patiently built a philosophy and a wine culture. Far removed from passing fads and whims, our aim is to express as naturally as possible the fabulous terroirs of this land of garrigue and mountains, cooled by the Mistral, Cers and Tramontane winds and tempered by the Mediterranean Sea.

We have always been convinced that the best terroirs in our region are those that are set at altitude. Today, each of our estates is to be found in the heart of the highest areas in their appellation, where the cool nights and the wide range of temperatures will bring out all the aromatic riches of the grapes as they ripen whilst maintaining their freshness and elegance.

We are Nicolas and Miren de Lorgeril. We make wines on terroirs set at altitude in the Mediterranean area of southern France. As simply as possible, the two of us will outline our family history, attempt to share our philosophy with you, describe our company and the people who work here, and tell you all about the work that goes into our wines in order to make our personal signature worthy of your confidence...

Cabardès

A.O.C. 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 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....


Minervois

A.O.C. Minervois

The Minervois is one of the most ancient vineyards of the Mediterranean region. Indeed, its land was chosen by the Romans as providing ideal conditions for the first vines they planted in Languedoc Roussillon. Its name comes from the ancient city of Minerve, a stronghold built by the Romans and dedicated to the goddess Minerva. Since that time, many amphora shards and vestiges of cellars have been discovered, testimony to the importance of this vineyard. The region, austere in winter and redolent with sunshine in summer, has survived over the centuries its invasions by barbarians, Arabs and Christians. The essence of Minervois la Livinière, as in so many Midi appellations, is the blend; a marriage of different grape varieties that adds subtle nuance of flavour to the whole. Natural alcohol level must reach a minimum of 12% without enrichment (so no chaptalisation) and maximum yield is a modest 45 hl/ha. Ageing may be in barrel or vat, and unlike basic Minervois, the wine must be bottled at source, so cannot be sent off to a négociant elsewhere in France...

Montolieu

Montolieu

Montolieu is a small, pretty village, which prides itself as being a 'village of books and graphic arts', and is a good place to browse through old books - there are perhaps 15 bokshops in the village, as well as a museum on the subject, and the possibility to learn about bookbinding. Stop anyway, even if you aren't interested in books, just for an amble around the village, in an attractive setting on a rocky outcrop between two rivers.


Castelnaudary

Castelnaudary

Castelnaudary is probably most famous for a 'peasant' dish of beans and various meats known as Cassoulet. It can take two days or more to prepare and is great comfort food for a chilly winter evening. The traditional cooking vessel is an earthenware pot from Issel called a cassole for which the dish is named. The ingredients include haricot beans grown in Pamiers or Lavelanet, duck confit, garlic sausage, pork, Toulouse sausage and mutton - but not necessarily all at the same time but a combination of several of them. If it's done absolutely to tradition, apparently is must be cooked in a baker's oven fired with rushes from the Montange Noire. In town you will find some fine old mansions, a restored windmill and an 18th Century semaphore tower. It is a real pleasure to spend a couple of hours in Castelnaudary having coffee or shopping for a picnic in the market. Today it serves as an important commercial centre for the rolling Lauragais farming country hereabouts, as it once was for the traffic on the Canal du Midi in the 17th century when agricultural and manufactured produce became easier to export to which it owed a period of prosperity. The Grand Bassin in the town at 7 hectares is the largest open area of water in the canal, and is today its major pleasure port. In fact, the most flattering view of the town is still that from the canal's Grand Bassin, which makes it look remarkably like a Greek island town, with its ancient houses climbing the hillside from the water's edge.


Eburomagus 
la Maison de l’Archéologie

Eburomagus - la Maison de l’Archéologie - Bram

Eburomagus, the House of Archaeology is located in the heart of the village of Bram. It houses a permanent exhibition section together with an temporary exhibition area. The House of ogy presents 6 themes showing the wealth of the archaeological heritage of Lauragais from the prehistoric period to the middle ages. These include everyday life, exchanges, funeral rituals, etc. But it is the period of Roman antiquity that is of the greatest interest in view of the importance of the "Vicus Eburomagus", especially in relation to its pottery workshops....


Saissac

Saissac

The Château de Saissac is a ruined Cathar castle in the southernmost tip of the commune of Saissac in the Aude département in the north-west of Carcassonne, France. It was once the residence of the powerful vassal family of Trencavel. Today the ruins are protected as official historical monuments of France. Saissac is mentioned in a legal document (an Acte) from the Abbey of Montolieu in 958, and again in a text of 960. The village is typical of the Black Mountains and is built between the ravines of the rivers Aiguebelle and Vernassonne, just above their confluence. Things to see in the village include the porte d'Autan, a lavoire built in granite, a second covered lavoire and a fine echauguette. Vestiges of the city walls (enceinte) are still visible around the ancient village. These walls date from the Fourteenth century, the same period that the castle of Saissac was restored...


Grotte de Limousis

Grotte de Limousis - Limousis

The history of Grotte de Limousis goes back to the mists of time. It was a shelter under the rock used by both prehistoric men and Cave Bears. It has always been a refuge for men. Fancy a bit of freshness? We invite you to discover the cave Limousis, 20 kilometers northeast of Carcassonne and penetrate into the bowels of the earth. Discovered in 1811, the cave, carved by a river has been electrified and fitted in 1935. However, it was modernized in 1973 to its current appearance. The eighth and final room contains a unique mineral formation, a chandelier of aragonite to 4 meters high and 10 meters in circumference, a real treasure....


Bram

Bram

Bram is a commune in the Aude department in the Languedoc-Roussillon region in southern France. Bram is part of the old province of Lauragais, and is 790 km from Paris. The CD33 road to the village follows the Roman road, the Romans settling in the area because of a climate which balanced the warmth of the Mediterranean with the freshness of the Atlantic. In 60BCE, they began construction of Bram and called it Eburomagus. Roman remains suggest the town was less round than the current town. Eburomagus disappeared. The modern town was born in the 12th century, built around its fortress church. By the 17th century Bram had outgrown its walls and expanded in concentric circles...
