Clos Lapeyre

Clos Lapeyre. An agricultural concern that has produced red fruit and grapes for the cooperative over the last three generations. When Jean-Bernard Larrieu succeeded his father on the estate, he built a wine store and then vinified, produced and bottled his first wine in 1985. The estate now encompasses ten hectares and was certified organic in 2005. A vineyard that is planted on the “Poudingues of Jurançon”: a stony land rich in siliceous gravel. The Vitatge Vieil Jurançon blend from very old vines make a wine that is smooth, open and fatty with tastier notes of fruit. The Mantoulan, the first vintage of which dates from 2006, is a very straight wine with a clear colour and a great purity, a mark of the Occitan cultivation methods. Visits of the wine store and the vine museum, and tastings of the wine and local produce. “The Jurançonada”: Jean-Bernard has created a walking tour among the vineyards accompanied by a small poetic guide book to go and discover the land and its wine growers. By appointment.
