Lar Veale presents Pennautier and the Cabardes

Lots of things going on in the Languedoc of late. A lot of good videos in queue, but you’re going to have to wait a bit more. In the meantime, I found this post from Lar Veale’s site Sour Grapes. On a recent visit to the region sponsored by Chateau Pennautier he made a video that describes the qualities of the terroir in the Cabardes.

Watching this, you can understand how the Cabardès earned a spot in the Grands Vins du Languedoc.  Although I don’t know if the climate here is quite as lush as the Pennautier lawn makes us out to be, provoking Lar to compare our soil to the green glens of Ireland. :D  But either way, the sentiment is good and you can tell that the terroir has really inspired him on his visit.
