The Languedoc is a vast region stretching across much of the south and Mediterranean and is France`s single largest vineyard entity for its Vins de Pays wines. Within the Languedoc lie several distinctly identified Vins de Pays (including the l`Aude, Gard and Hérault) and many generic appellations that maintain traditional local blends and wine styles such as Minervois, Corbières, Pic Saint Loup and Fitou.
Established under Louis XIII in 1650, 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.
The wines from Pays d`Oc around Carcassonne in Southern France originate from a unique terroir. These Viognier vines are planted on north facing slopes to benefit from the coolness during warm summers and ensure a good acidity and an exceptional aromatic quality. Very intense nose, dominated by aromas of fresh peach, passion fruit and floral notes of lime and roses. Excellent balance, vivid and smooth, developing a range of citrus flavours on the palate.
