Chateau Pennautier – Vignobles Lorgeril


In 1620 Bernard de Pennautier had the good sense to employ one of the chief architects of the palace of Versailles, Le Vau, to extend his already rather impressive familial home, located on the outskirts of Carcassonne. Nicolas and Miren de L’Orgeril are his tenth generation descendants,  all ten of whom have made wine, celebrating this unique environment. The Appellation Contrôlée of Cabardès is located at an altitude of 700-1000 metres in the southern foothills of the Montagne Noire, North west of the languedoc-Roussillon, itself a geological and climatic cross-roads displaying both Atlantic Mediterranean influence.
