The Estate

Established in 2015, Domaine La Lauzeta presides over long-established vineyards on the schist foothills of the Espinouse and Caroux mountains in the north of the Saint-Chinian appellation.

The Area

Rising up from the plains towards the mountains of the Parc Naturel Regional du Haut-Languedoc to the north, the vineyards are surrounded by increasingly verdant scrubland covered by chestnut, hazelnut and cherry trees and green oaks.

The Vineyard

Vines have been cultivated in the region since Roman times, notably with the development of the Via Dolomita linking Gaul with Hispanica, a tradition built on by Benedictine monks around Saint-Chinian through the middle ages.

Climate & Geology

THE CLIMATE The river and the mountains provide a refreshing influence during the long, hot and dry summers, which turn into mellow and mild autumns.

The Appellation

SAINT-CHINIAN Saint-Chinian is situated to the north-west of Beziers, incorporating 20 villages with vineyards planted at an altitude of between 100-400 metres, across some 3,200 hectares.
