      Tasting Notes
      Domaine de Ventenac is found about 10km north of Carcassonne in the appellation of Cabardes which, because of its location between f the Massif Cantral on one side and the Pyrenees on the other, enjoys a climate which is an interesting mix of Mediterranean and Atlantic influences ensuring ideal conditionsfor growing all sorts of grape varieties.

      Maison Ventenac proposes original, unique wines, always remaining true to the same principle : respect for the grape and its organoleptic qualities. All our production benefits from the same focus on quality, from our Pays d’Oc PGI cuvées all the way up to our premium Cabardès PDO wines.

      Resolutely militant, and just a little bit of an anarchist, our “Dissidents” and “Païens” ranges express what we believe to be the very soul of Maison Ventenac, without any form of constraint, cultivating our finest plots of land in the most natural way possible, classifying our soils in order to better define them, selecting and creating our wines as we see fit. Here, there is no make-up, just delicate blends concocted in jars of 150 or 500 litres, and in casks of 2,000 litres. These wines are uncompromising, chiselled, precise and direct. An uppercut – but the good sort! One that wakes you up and tells you that not everything is standardised and uniform, but can be unique.

      Patience -"I haven't a single one left and it really is a shame because it is so good!"
      Signed, an impatient winemaker.

      "100% Cab Franc grown on deep clay and limestone. 30 hl/ha, like Paul. Malo and then aged in one 2,000-litre cask. The wine's producer urges us to wait at least until 2018 before drinking this.
      Ridiculously heavy bottle (like its brother Paul). Made in exactly the same way as Paul. Sweet nose, very sweet fruit – heavier than Paul. Lots of density here is preventing the Cab Franc fragrance from escaping. To be revisited in two years or so?
      15.5+ Points."
      (Jancis Robinson, JR Purple Pages, Aug 2017)
