Les Païens

The “Dissidents” also went on to give birth to the “Pagans”. Why did we choose this name? In rejection of all forms of oenological or viticultural dogma. Far removed from the “Languedoc standards”, from “the usual way” or from “common practices”, these wines are the exception to the rule. Even by our own house’s particular standards! By daring to brave “prejudice”, we have gone against the original conception of white wine by ageing a Chardonnay in casks for a few months. The Grenache that is historically used in our rosés because deemed uninteresting in red, makes up 100% of our “Paria” cuvée. Less exclusive than the “Dissidents”, these wines were nevertheless crafted to the same standards and with the same sense of transgression. They are unyielding, and affirm the frank identity of our terroir and the love we feel for it. They excel in their freshness, juiciness and minerality. These are signature wines, flag-bearers of the knowledge and skill of Maison Ventenac, in a rather more extreme style than that of the Chateau.
