Winemaker Notes

#66 Wine Enthusiast Top 100 Best Buys of 2017

Peyros has a dark, intense ruby color with garnet-red reflects. With an intense nose of red berries with notes of raspberries, spices, and vanilla. On the palate, the wine is round and rich with a finish of mellowed tannins. Well structured wine with a good length on the palate. Pairs well with roasted red meats, poultry, duck confit and refined cheeses.

Blend: 70% Tannat, 25% Cabernet Franc, 5%Cabernet Sauvignon

Critical Acclaim

Wine Enthusiast
This is a fine combination of ripe berry fruits and powerful tannins. It is dark and structured, with powerful concentration and fine acidity. The wine is just about ready to drink, still firm with a rich fruity aftertaste.

Chateau Peyros, Southwest, France
Image of winery
Chateau Peyros is the property located the furthest south in the Madiran appellation. It dates from the 17th century and was acquired by Jean Jacques Lesgourgues in 1999. The Lesgourgues family strives to produce high quality wines. Peyros means "stony place" in Gascon, a good definition for the exceptional land the vines grow on: derived from Pyrenean moraines, the clay-loam soil is densely packed with rolled pebbles from the glaciers.

The vines are cultivated using sustainable growing techniques. The organic contribution is natural, exclusively made up of manure from a herd of 300 sheep that amble around the vineyard from October to April.

The fermentation room was built in the early 80s under the guidance of Emile Peynaud, oenologist and one of the founders of traceability. In 2000, the fermentation room was equipped with a micro-oxygenation system. Malolactic fermentation in barrels is practiced on the third of the wines (those housed in new barrels) to give body and soften the tannins. Château Peyros Castle has an impressive record and is mentioned in all the best guides.

Southwest

View all wine

Offering the perfect balance of quality and value, Southwest, France is a recognized appellation that encompasses all wine regions in France’s southwestern corner (except for Bordeaux and Cognac, which merit their very own). Two of the more famous subregions here are Cahors, known for its Malbec, and Madiran, home of the robust Tannat grape. Bordeaux Blends are also popular red wines of the Southwest; Petit Manseng is the regions’s star autochthonous white variety.

Other Red Blends

View all wine

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
