Luc Lapeyre's easygoing exterior belies the hard work and dedication which he applies to his wine. He is very much an instinctive winemaker. The three wines we carry, Le San Bres, L’Amourier and Les Clots all have quite different characteristics, and it is only Luc who knows what he wants to achieve, and how to go about it. The blends change according to each year’s harvest, and according to Luc’s nose and palate.
A technical question about the particular aromas and flavours of one of the wines will be answered with a Gallic shrug, telling us that that’s just the way his wine is, achieved by his intuition and experience in making the wine which represents him and his terroir. Having walked the vineyards with Luc, one gets a great sense of passion for his vocation.
Cinsault is grown on soil reminiscent of a lunar soil photograph such is the extent of the volcanic particles. One also cannot miss the wonderful scents of the surrounding garrigue which must surely seep into the wine.
