The Estate Clos Lapeyre

This family farm was traditional dedicated to mixed farming with livestock, small fruits and grapes which were taken to the local cooperative. From 1985 onwards, the estate was turned over exclusively to viticulture when Jean-Bernard Larrieu gave birth to Clos Lapeyre, farming his vines, fermenting his grapes, ageing his wines, bottling and then selling them. In 2000, the vineyard covered about 10 hectares and then in 2004 it grew when the magnificent, old vineyards of Domaine de Nays-Labassère were taken over, with an extra 7 hectares in the heart of Chapelle-de-Rousse.

CLIMATE:

-The variation between day and night temperatures due to altitude favours ripening.
-The joint influence of the Pyrenees which are 25km away and the Atlantic
Ocean , 100km away, helps moderate temperatures.

THE VINEYARDS:
Certified organic viticulture licensed by Qualité France. 8 hectares of vineyards on terraces on very steep slopes.
Soils are ploughed in Spring between the rows and the vines to aerate the soils and   promote deep rooting. 

THE CELLAR: A simple and traditional cellar with small means of intervention as the wine is really made in the vineyards.
- Stainless steel tanks for the fruit-driven range of wines.
- Barrel cellar with foudres for the other  cuvées.
