DOMAIN OF LANDEYRAN

THE DOMAIN OF LANDEYRAN, A BLOW OF HEART

Landeyran is the name of the steep cliff of quartzite that dominates the vineyard, in the municipality of Causses-et-Veyran. It is also the name of the stream that flows gently in the hollow of this enchanting valley of the Saint-Chinian appellation.
A few years ago, Frederic Jeanjean fell in love with his beautiful shale slopes, his typical villages with narrow streets and the intensity of the old Carignan estate. The decision was made, he and his wife would become winemakers in this exceptional terroir.

A VEIN OF SCHISTES, UNIVERSE OF CARIGNAN

In the 18th century, many vine growers were tempted to abandon the stony slopes of Saint-Chinian in favor of the more productive lands of the Béziers plain. Fortunately, a handful of resisters became aware of the high quality potential of this terroir.
All the conditions are gathered within the domain for a perfect maturation of the different grape varieties: the Mediterranean climate, the south-south-east orientation of the vineyard, the not very fertile soils … They are particularly adapted to the cultivation of late grape varieties, such as the Carignan, by the “refractory” effect of the schists which restore the night to the vine the heat stored during the day. Harmoniously associated with Syrah and Grenache Noir, this grape confers on Landeyran wines their dark color, a beautiful tannic structure and intense aromas of black berries and cocoa.
