Other Info:
Maison Ventenac is a family affair. Established in 1973 by Alain Maurel and his father, the estate is now in the hands of the 3rd generation. Stéphanie, the eldest of Alain Maurel's 3 daughters, arrived with her husband, Olivier Ramé in 2010 to take over the estate and revamp its image. Thanks to his extensive training in wine-growing and oenology, Olivier succeeded in combining the old world heritage, passed down by his father-in-law, with the new world spirit. Located in the heart of the Cabardès AOC region, this 160-hectare vineyard (of which 30 hectares are rented) backs onto the Montagne Noire and enjoys both the Languedoc sun and the cool Atlantic influence all year round.

Lemon-yellow colour with vibrant green hues, with a wealth of shiny floral notes of elderflower and daisies, hints of zingy lemon, juicy apricots and hints of tropical pineapple on the nose. The wine has a complex and extremely vibrant aromatic profile, both floral and fruity. The palate reveals a light and vibrant wine on mid-body with a crisp acidity and salivating minerality to the finish. An outstanding expression of Chenin, both typical of the grape but revealed here with a delightful precise and playful floral and fruity expression.
