    In the heart of the AOC Cabardès, the vineyard climbs on the sides of the sunny and rocky slopes of the south of the Black Mountain, from 200 to 400 meters above sea level. Breathtaking views allow you to embrace at one glance the Pyrenees chain to the south, the Massif Central to the north and the famous Carcassonne city located 5 kilometers away. On this terroir, limestone and clay are combined, Mediterranean warmth, Atlantic influence and mountain freshness. Many areas of scrubland and rocks have been regained on the Montagne Noire up to an altitude of 400 meters. Château de Pennautier in a few figures ... 146 hectares of area re-planted over the last 35 years, including 90 ha in AOC and 56 ha in local wines. 21 hectares of Cabernet, 5 of Carignan, 6 of Cinsault, 22 of Chardonnay, 4 ha of Cot, 21 ha of Grenache, 36 ha of Merlot, 2 ha of Sauvignon, 26 ha of Syrah and 3 ha of Viognier, a grape variety of dream! 6 kilometers north-west of Carcassonne. 230 meters is the altitude of Pennautier, but its vines climb much higher still in Cabardès.
