Winemakers Stephanie & Olivier Ramé, a husband and wife team, are the third generation of their family to run the show at Maison Ventenac. Their vineyards are in Cabardès, the only Languedoc appellation that allows both Atlantic and Mediterranean grape varieties, so offering a unique exploration of flavors. The village is famed for its limestone, chalky soils, which they say gives their wines their saline & fresh characters. The winemaking philosophy is to allow their unique terroir to shine through in the wines, presenting them as naturally as possible and raising in tuns, terra cotta urns and concrete vats to enhance their purity.
Ripe nectarine, apricot and fleshy peach with a tropical edge, this is lively with a juicy core and persistent finish. Lovely depth of flavor in the mid-palate and it really lasts on the finish. Boasting a heavy bottle, with a gorgeous lemony floral perfume, this wine literally fills the mouth with a dazzling dance of clotted cream and white citrus, baked pears and almonds. It unfurls in the glass, offering up dried chamomile flowers, and a touch of crème brûlée.
