After her father, Alain Maurel, retired in 2010, Stephanie Ramé and her husband Olivier took over the operations of Maison Ventenac, located in the tiny Cabardès wine region of Southern France. Since then, they’ve been modernizing the winery and converting the vineyard to organic farming. Their “Pierre” cuveé is a nod to Stephanie’s grandfather, with their aim to “wrap the authoritative character of Cabernet Sauvignon in a velvet glove”. “Pierre” is velvety indeed; he’s also mildly earthy, peppery, chalky and quite agreeable overall. This is a light-touch cab that will do you no wrong with bolognese, steak, grilled veggies or a roast chicken w/ herbs.
