Tasting Notes

85% Gros Manseng/15% Petit Manseng, late harvested with 2 sweeps through the vineyard (tris) in November. 50% fermented in barrels, with the remainder in vats. Delicate honey and herb-tinged nose is enticing, with a sweet edge. Lovely rich texture on the straw and herb palate with good balance and some honeyed sweetness.


Critical Praise

“Clos Lapeyre is a 12 ha domain owned by the Larrieu family, in Jurançon, Southwest France. The first vintage here was 1985, and the vines occupy a privileged position on steep slopes at an altitude of 250 m. Jean-Bernard Larrieu makes the wines, and his aim is produce wines that express the specificity of the grape varities and the soils (pebbly clay/limestone and silex). Jean-Bernard is introducing organic viticulture here: he avoids herbicides, works the soil to encourage deep rooting, and uses natural composts. The attention to detail and terroir-focused approach shows in the wines, which are wonderfully original. These are wines bursting with character, and I recommend you try them if you have the chance.” Jamie Good – Wine Anorak
