Chateau de Lancyre, Pic St Loup

Château de Lancyre is one of the leading producers in the region.

Some 20km from Montpellier, in the Pic St Loup appellation, lies the commune of Valflaunes, home to Château de Lancyre.

The long-overlooked style and quality of this increasingly fashionable appellation has now been recognised and awarded the 'Grand Cru de Languedoc' status.

The Durand and Valentin families have been the proprietors for four generations and look after 75 hectares of vines. Château de Lancyre is now recognised as one of the leading producers in the region, producing a mouth-watering rosé and lush, velvety rouge.

The vines here average 25 years old and are planted to a density of 5500 vines per hectare. The soil is predominantly clay and limestone. The yield is around 50 hl per ha. The harvest is a combination of a specially adapted machine and hand picking.

The Chateau de Lancyre wines from Pic St. Loup pay testimony to the quality that can be achieved in this region.
