Anarchists don't usually like authority. At Domaine du Landeyran, it's the chistes soil that challenges the vines year after year. It takes courage and passion to overcome this terroir, which is reputed to be rebellious and difficult. Anarschiste is a tribute to this passion and to this majestic grape variety, Carignan.

Pairings : this wine is best served with game in sauce or braised red meat.

Tasting notes : the wine's colour is a deep, intense black. The nose reveals aromas of black fruit and spices, complemented by roasted notes from the ageing process. On the palate, the attack is powerful and elegant, marked by greedy notes of black fruit. This wine has remarkable aromatic persistence!

Vinification and vineyard : 

Location : the vines are located in the commune of Causses-et-Veyran, near the steep quartzite cliff that dominates the estate.

Climate : Mediterranean. The estate faces South/South-East, which is perfectly suited to growing late-ripening grape varieties, thanks to the "refractory" effect of the schists, which give back to the vines at night the heat stored during the day.

Soil : Ordovician schist soil, with a selection of the oldest plots of Carignan (over 40 years old) pruned into goblets.

Vinification and ageing : The Syrahs are aged for ten months in French oak barrels. The grapes are harvested by hand, depending on the weather and the earliness of the vintage. It is decided after monitoring the ripening of the grapes by tasting them.

Appellation : located to the north-west of Béziers, at the foot of the Caroux and Espinouse Massifs, the Saint-Chinan PDO comprises twenty villages. The appellation owes its name to the monk Saint-Benoît d'Anhan, who in 794 founded the monastery of Saint-Laurent on the left bank of the Vernazobre, where he developed the vine. The monastery took the name of Sanch Anhan in 1102 and became Saint-Chinan in the Middle Ages. 

Cellaring potential : 10 years

Syrah 35%: this grape variety is widely planted in the Côtes du Rhône, Languedoc and Provence regions. It produces wines that combine strength and balance with a distinctive aromatic signature of violets, cocoa, pepper and spices.

Grenache 35%: This grape variety is widespread in Languedoc, Provence and the Côtes du Rhône. It produces powerful, highly expressive wines with round tannins. Characterised by blackcurrant, blackberry and cherry aromas, it is the basis of natural sweet red wines such as Banyuls and Maury.

Carignan 30%: Originally from Spain, this variety thrives in the sunny terroirs of Languedoc, Provence and the Côtes du Rhône. It produces very full-bodied wines (figs, blackberries, spices) that are typically southern.
