The Clos Lapeyre
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.

AREA: 18 hectares.
TERROIRS: Silty-clay soils laying on the typical “poudingue de Jurançon”, rich in pebbles and siliceous gravels.

THE VINEYARD: Organic viticulture with the French Quality license since 2005. The practice of Biodynamics since 2013
Cultivation in terraces over 8 hectares on very steep slopes. Tillage in spring per row: promotes aeration and deep rooting.
THE CELLAR: Classic and simple with little intervention because the wine is made on the vineyard. Stainless steel vats for fruit wines and oak barrels and cask cellars for cuvées.
THE RANGE: Dry and sweet white AOP Jurançon wine and Wine of France (VDF)
PRODUCTION: from 60 to 90 000 bottles depending on the vintage.
