The Clos Lapeyre

The family farm was traditionally dedicated to mixed farming with various small fruits and grapes taken to the cave cooperative. From 1985, the estate turned exclusively to grape-growing and this is when the Clos Lapeyre was born.

In 2000, the vineyard spread over 10 hectares. In 2004, it grew bigger with the taking-over of the Nays-Labassère estate, a magnificent and old vineyard of 7 hectares in the heart of Chapelle-de-Rousse.

Cultivation in terraces over 8 hectares on very steep slopes. Tillage in spring per row: promotes aeration and deep rooting.

THE RANGE: Dry and sweet white AOP Jurançon wine and Wine of France (VDF)
