Guy Vanlancker’s eclectic plantings (he also has Tempranillo and Pinot Noir) give birth to La Chandelière (75% Syrah 25% Grenache) and La Galine (Syrah, Grenache, Carignan and Cinsault), among others, both of which stand the test of time very well. Guy first moved here in 1981 and bought a few vineyard parcels around La Livinière, which is a cute, little village; it’s easy to visit a few other producers on foot – see Walks.

Useful information: Guy speaks limited English - French or Flemish preferred!
