About the Vineyard:
Chateau Peyros sets itself apart thanks to a very specific terroir and micro-climate. Planted over a significant rocky mass, Chateau Peyros is benefiting of a full south exposure. This exceptional sun exposure guaranties a greater photosynthesis for its vineyard, a greater maturation of its grapes and higher quality of its wine production.
Part of the Madiran appellation, Chateau Peyros is located in the heart of the Vic Bilh, or “old country,” in the local dialect. Shaped by Pyrenean moraines, the Madiran region is composed of a succession of south-north oriented valleys. Its multiple slopes have an east-west exposure.
The soil is composed of a conglomerate of rolled pebbles and clay called “pouzzolanes.” Chateau Peyros’s 49 acres of vineyard consists of Tannat (70%) and Cabernet Franc (30%).
Where tradition meets innovation, Chateau Peyros’s cellar, created by Emile Penaud, is one the most modern of the appellation. Fervent supporters of sustainable agriculture, the Lesgourgues family has reduced the use of chemicals by more than 40% since they took over the property.
For the last 8 years, Corinne, Chateau Peyros’ winemaker, has been creating the most exquisite wines from terroir of Madiran.
Red cherry robe, intense and brilliant. The nose is now well opened with intense notes of fruits (cherry, rasperry, black-currant) with notes of vanilla and lightly toasted. The mouth is both powerful and elegant. Tannins are present and well coated. On the palate, fruit aromas are really dominating with a long finish.
Will pair nicely with roasted meat, (lamb, beef), saucy meat, spicy beef tartar, duck breast. Settling before being served.
