Winemaker Notes

Wine Enthusiast
Under the same ownership as Château Haut-Selve of Bordeaux, this estate produces a structured Madiran. It's a richly perfumed wine, showing great tannins as well as generous, juicy black fruits and acidity. It will be ready to drink from 2020.

Chateau Peyros, France
Chateau Peyros Winery Image
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. Chateau Peyros Castle has an impressive record and is mentioned in all the best guides.

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.

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 enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. 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.
