In the 18th Century, many growers were tempted to abandon Saint-Chinian’s stony slopes in favour of more productive land on the Béziers plain. Very fortunately, a handful resisted realising what great quality potential this terrain had. All the conditions come together at the estate’s core for perfect ripening of the different grape varieties: the Mediterranean climate, south – southwest facing vineyard, poor soils… These are particularly adapted to growing late-ripening varieties such as Carignan, for the ‘refractory’ effect of schist, which gives back heat to the vines at night stored up during the day. Blended harmoniously with Syrah and black Grenache, this grape confers their dark colour, nice tannic structure and intense black berry fruit and cocoa aromas to Landeyran’s wines.
