Domaine de Ventenac is found about 10km north of Carcassonne in the appellation of Cabardes which, because of its location between the Massif Cantral on one side and the Pyrenees on the other, the region enjoys a climate which is an interesting mix of Mediterranean and Atlantic influences ensuring ideal conditionsfor growing all sorts of grape varieties.
Varietal typicity (using only one or two varieties in each wine) is the main focus of the Domaine de Ventenac range wheras the Chateau Ventenac portfolio wines attempt to reveal the broader terroir. The wines are made in accordance with the AOC (the rules governing wine production within a particular area). The Reserve de Jeanne therefore contains roughly 40% of the Atlantic varieties and 40% Mediterranean varieties, but the blend varies with the vintage.
"A beguiling blend of the lighter, fresher notes of cabernet franc – not otherwise common in the Languedoc – and violet scented, tarry, peppery, velvety syrah. A lovely, medium bodied, well crafted wine of great charm and ideal with any charcuterie or pasta dishes." (Terry Kirby, The Independent, September 2020)
