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,

“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

“The 2007 pure-Mourvèdre Matissat was the greatest of its own short flight: perhaps the most engagingly baroque example of this variety I have ever tasted (blackberries, mushrooms, blood, white truffle and viscera: gorgeous), and another wine that seems unlikely to die before I do.” Andrew Jefford, Decanter (Link)

“A blend of 100% Mourvèdre that comes from the same plot as the vines for the top cuvee, La Pèira, the 2007 Matissat sports a deep purple color to go with backwards, almost brooding aromas of smoked black currants, plum sauce, violets, herbed game, hickory, and dark chocolate on the nose. Full-bodied and incredibly mineral-driven on the palate, with a saliva inducing salty, almost blood-like quality, this awesome wine has a seamless texture, fantastic concentration and extract, and a tannic, blockbuster finish that goes on for seemingly over a minute. Not your grandmother’s Mourvèdre, this singular beauty needs a solid decant if drinking anytime soon and will have two decades or more of total longevity.” 94/100 Jeb Dunnuck Wine Advocate / Rhone Report (Link)

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.
