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

“…I blind-tasted, over a couple of days recently, almost ninety of Languedoc’s finest red wines. The tasting finished with a flight of wines whose prices march boldly into Bordeaux and Burgundy territory: €55 for La Grange des Pères 2007, €64 for La Pèira 2009, €82 for the 2007 Porte du Ciel from La Négly and €83 for the 2008 Clos des Truffiers, also from La Négly. It was, in taste as well as in price, a battle of the sauropods, but on my scoresheet as well as for those I  was tasting with, the winner was a new arrival: the 2009 Matissat from La Pèira (€40 from the cellar; Berry Bros, by the way, will be stocking both the 2007 and 2009 vintages later this year). It was pure Mourvèdre, but I don’t think Bandol-lovers would have recognized it, so pristine were its black fruits, and so elegantly had the garrigue allusions been incorporated. Yes, it had tiptoed right up to the tipping point, looked over — and stepped back: delicious.” Andrew Jefford, Decanter (Link)

“The 2009 transforms that black chocolate into gratifyingly milky milk chocolate, softens the tannins and adds a spoonful of liquorice essence.”Andrew Jefford Decanter

“The most complete and tasting like a mix of the ’07 and ’08, with the purity and freshness of the ’08 and some (not all) of the richness found in the ’07, the 2009 Matissat is a pure, classically built Mourvèdre that offers beautiful black raspberry and cassis styled fruit intermixed with wild herbs, tree bark, liquid flower, and blood. Full-bodied, seamless, and incredibly elegant, with perfect balance, clean, integrated acidity, and brilliant precision on the finish, it too can be consumed now or cellared for 15+ years.” 96/100 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.
