Château de Pennautier
Château de Ciffre Terroirs d'Altitude 2016 - Rouge

Languedoc, Faugères

Château de Pennautier - Château de Ciffre Terroirs d'Altitude

Dark colour, dark garnet. Powerful, intense nose, dominated by black fruit compote. Notes of roasting, Havana and cocoa supported by a dash of pepper. Full-bodied on the palate, fleshy, very ripe tannins, very long finish. Beautiful presence in the mouth. Very good ageing potential.

The word of the Winemaker, :

The schist soils cling to the Piedmont of the Pic de la Coquillade, which culminates at 650m. The high-altitude terroirs are those whose nocturnal freshness allows for a gentle maturation and the most elegant expression of aromas.

The Wine Estate

Château de Pennautier is a family estate that was born in 1620 with the construction of the Château by Bernard de Pennautier, treasurer of the Languedoc States. Louis XIII stayed there, and later, Le Vau and Le Nôtre will participate in the extension of the building to make it one of the most remarkable buildings around Carcassonne.
