Château La Péyère

Château La Péyère

Where the Château la Peyere stands today, there used to be an island, as a map from 1646 shows.

 

It was called Jau Dignac-Loirac. If vines had been planted on them back then, they would have been surrounded by the water of the Gironde. Over time, the tidal currents of the Atlantic and Gironde filled the space between what was then the northernmost point of the Medoc with sand and gravel.

 


Nowadays you can still see Royan and the former fishing village of Meschers on the northeast side of the Gironde from here. The heavy boats called gabarres, which used to carry barrels of wine up the Gironde estuary, are also on the move now and then.

 

The Château La Péyère at a glance

It now covers 31 hectares, with 6,600 to 7,500 vines / hectare laid out with the aim of producing wines of the highest quality. The following data confirm this intention:

  • The vineyards were deliberately planted with less productive vines from the clones Riparia Gloire because they are particularly suitable for the climate on the Atlantic.
  • A high planting density with up to 7,000 vines per hectare and low harvest quantities guarantee a high quality of the grapes.
  • The vines are kept very low to take advantage of the legendary heat recirculation through the stones.
  • The vines are very close to each other, the distance from vine to vine is only 1 m and the width of the row between them is only 1.5 m.
  • These positive conditions were supplemented with the introduction of organic viticulture in 2008 and the biodynamic way of working in 2014.
  • Terroir: gravel soil, slight slope in southeast orientation.
  • Locatli>n: right on the Gironde.
  • Grape varieties: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot, 3% Cabernet Franc.
  • Planting density: 6600 and 7500 vines / hectare
