Benjamin Taillandier

Benjamin grew up in Caunes-Minervois and returned there after a stint at a big winery in Fronton. His parents didn't own vines so he bought a plot of old Grenache and Syrah vines and planted some Cinsault, Carignan, and Terret Gris. He likes to make wines that are approachable and drinkable, and this he does though his wines are by no means straightforward.
