Benjamin Taillandier

Benjamin Taillandier – the Languedoc is in his blood! With the shoulders of a rugby player, and an accent and bawdy sense of humour to fit, this young vigneron never ceases to thrill us with his sun-filled cuvées! How did he find himself at the helm of an estate with 13-hectares of organic vines? A number of years ago, having been seduced by the wines of such vignerons as Maxime Magnon and Jo Landron, Benjamin began to wonder if he wouldn’t enjoy a life in grapes, even though nothing predestined him to a career in winemaking. By 2002, his oenology diploma in hand, he begun training under the great Jean-Baptiste Sénat, who would become his mentor. At 27 years old, he settled in Villeneuve-Minervois where he’d fallen in love with a few hectares of old Carignan and Syrah vines. Today, he works his vines meticulously by day, and behind the bar by night! La Cantine du Curé is the name of Benjamin’s wine bar, because after all – friends, the south, and aperitifs, that’s what it’s all about!
