This estate dates back to the 17th century. It was acquired by the Lesgourgues family in 1999. With the help of Emile Penaud, Château Peyros was provided with a stainless steel tank. Also, a micro‐oxygenation system was setup in order to soften the wines made from Tannat. “Peyros” in Gascony language means a stony place, a strong characteristic of the terroir. Château Peyros is located in the most southern part of the Appellation, on an exceptional terroir. Two main types of soil: Very dense clay and limestone soil with rolled pebbles.
80% Tannat, 20% Cabernet Franc
From 10 to 15 years
– Traditional in stainless still tanks

Will pair nicely with roasted meat, (lamb, beef), saucy meat, spicy beef tartar, duck breast. Settling before being served.
Red cherry robe, intense and brilliant. The nose is now well opened with intense notes of fruits (cherry, raspberry, black-currant) with notes of vanilla and lightly toasted. The mouth is both powerful and elegant. Tannins are present and well coated. On the palate, fruit aromas are really dominating with a long finish.
