About La Pèira

“Easily one of the top estates in all of France” Jeb Dunnuck Wine Advocate

“Make no mistake about it, this is a very special wine made on a very special estate.” Jancis Robinson Financial Times

“Wines that need not fear comparison with any of the world’s wine icons” David Schildknecht Wine Advocate

”Rearranged my inner pantheon in the way that truly great wine can.” Andrew Jefford The World of Fine Wine

La Pèira is one of a select list of estates in France to receive a ✪✪✪✪✪ (super 5 stars, restricted to
the true classics, out-and-out world class). One of three in Southern France and the estate in the Languedoc to receive this rating, Wines Behind the Label Guide

“Many observers consider this to be the most exciting estate in the Languedoc.” Robert Parker Wine Advocate

“The flagship wine from this new venture is easily going to be the next great global cult wine. Think Clos Erasmus or Masseto” Gary Vaynerchuk

“Confirmed the high potential of the relatively cool, windy hills north of Clermont” Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson, The World Atlas of Wine

“A range of wines of striking depth and originality yet great truth to place, too.” Andrew Jefford, Financial Times

“The texture and the depth of flavor are amazing. It reminded me at different moments of 1989 La Mission Haut-Brion, Fattoria Galardi 2004 Terre di Lavoro and 1990 Henri Bonneau Reserve des Célestins.” Jay McInerney Wall Street Journal

“Have helped completely change the landscape and the horizon of their appellation, with the wines being placed on qualitative level or above, of the 1er crus classés of Bordeaux and the Grands Crus of Burgundy” Bertrand Rougier Classement des Meilleurs Vins de France 2014 Lafont Presse

“Now recognised as one of the very top wines in France.” Simon Field MW Berry Bros. & Rudd

“There is clearly real sensibility for the local terrain and varietal traditions” Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com

“Southern France’s First Growth” Andrew McMurray Vice, President of Zachys

“They have created great wines, the kind of wines that can jolt consumers’ perceptions of the Languedoc and can rival the best from Bordeaux, and the Rhône. Maybe, given time, they might even right a historical wrong.” Andrew Jefford, Gourmet Traveller WINE

“La Pèira 2008 Terrasses du Larzac A step up, with slightly more intensity, precision, and detail than the Las Flors (which is stunning in its own right), the 2008 La Pèira Terrasses du Larzac is a blend of roughly 60% Syrah and 40% Grenache that’s aged in close to 60% new barrels. Layered, dense, and deeply fruited, yet with a surprisingly elegant, polished profile, this thrilling ’08 boasts classic aromas of mineral-drenched black fruits, dark chocolate, charred rosemary, licorice, and iron that flow seamlessly to a full-bodied, perfectly balanced Languedoc. Possessing a full, concentrated mid-palate, stellar freshness, and a silky, structured finish, this elegant, yet powerful 2008 is quite possibly the wine of the vintage. It’s certainly impressive now, yet I suspect it will be even better with 2-4 years of bottle age, and age effortlessly for 10-12 years at a minimum.” 95/100 Jeb Dunnuck, Wine Advocate

“A cool year. Dark brownish crimson. Scented and expressive. Quite marked acidity but lovely texture and fluidity. Still with tannins lightly in evidence on the finish. Dry, as opposed to sweet, overall. Lots of minerals and interest here – all nicely showcased. Drink 2015 to 2023”17/20 Jancis Robinson

“Just as good [as the 2007], for me, is the 2008: less evident extravagance than in the 2007, but more elemental complexity, as elderberries take over from plums, leather and meat qualifies the fruit, and the finish grows stonier” Andrew Jefford, Decanter Magazine

While current vintages of the wines of La Pèira cannot be acquired here, we thought to found this little épicerie (especiariá in occitan) simply for the purchase of larger format bottlings, for en primeur offers, for the occasional limited stock of library vintages (ex-domaine), and for otherwise unavailable rarities and oddities only.
