Domaine Luc Lapeyre L'Amourier

A lovely bouquet, rich and concentrated with ripe tannins, beautifully balanced and quite complex thanks to the blend of Grenache, Mourvedre and Syrah.

Luc and Jean Yves Lapeyre conduct the wine like an orchestra, bringing together all the varying terroirs and grapes. The Syrah picked earlier preserves freshness. The ancient Carignan, due to global warming, ripens better than ever and balances the Mourvèdre. Fermentation happens naturally, and the result is a symphony. Élevage is for one year in big barrels, to preserve, not overpower the fruit, while for the Mourvèdre, a small part of the blend spends one year in barriques to soften the tannins.

Luc Lapeyre

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.

 

Luc works organically. When we asked him was it harder working this way, he nodded but said, "It's nicer, more technical and more interesting. You have to really watch your grapes and pay attention all the time. But it's better for everybody; for the environment, for the soil, for me as a winemaker and for the customer."

Domaine Luc Lapeyre

The vineyard is located in a Mediterranean climate zone, characterized by hot, dry summers, but protected from the north winds by the Montagne Noire. The soils are diverse and varied: stony soils, limestone and schist.
