The Domaine Saint-Lannes vineyard, which takes its name from the neighboring Romanesque chapel of the 12th century, is located on the magnificent terroirs of the Ténarèze, on the paths of Saint-Jacques de Compostela.
Operating the Domaine Saint-Lannes since 1955, and producing wines since 1982, the Duffour family has constantly evolved its production with the main objectives of respect for the soil, highlighting local grape varieties, and the pleasure taken in the tasting of his wines.
Surrounded by quarries whose limestone outcrops in some places, the clay-limestone soils allow Domaine Saint-Lannes produces rich, concentrated wines, very marked by an undeniable “terroir” effect and an unusual typicity.
The ocean climate and the proximity of the Pyrenees, with the particularity of having hot summers accompanied by cool nights, bring all their influence to the aromatic quality of our grapes.
Today, with a surface area of 95 ha, Domaine Saint-Lannes wines travel the world to meet epicureans of all origins.
Since 1982, the Duffour family made wines of great quality on the most beautiful terroirs of the Gascony.
The vineyard is located on clay limestone soils and bring us a rich and strong wine marked by the terroir and a typical character. The fruit selected for Les Peyrades is from vines with an average age of 25 years.
The grapes are heated before going to the press in order to extract quickly the aromas and colour without extracting too much tannin, as the Tannat is an aromatic grape but its tannins take ages to round up.
The juices are then vinified as for white at cool temperature and the different wines making the blend are racked together for few months before bottling.
The Les Peyrades Rouge reveals a brilliant crimson colour in the glass. The nose shows all kinds of Berries – mulberries, blackberries, blueberries and blackcurrants. As if this were not already impressive, other aromas such as cinnamon, black tea and bitter chocolate are in abundance. The taste of the wine is dry, persistent, elegant, with soft ripe tannins, rounded structure and a long spicy aftertaste.
