For three generations, the Larrieu family has been growing vines on an area of their estate traditionally used for mixed farming. They made their first vintage in 1985.

Clos Lapeyre's vines are on the steep hillsides facing the Pyrenees. The vineyards are planted on slopes at an altitude of between 250 and 350 meters. Because of the steep incline, some 9 hectares of the estate are planted on terraces. "Our wish today is to make highly expressive wines, which reveal our terroir and express a sense of place. On coverting to organic methods of agriculture, we had to re-think the way we grow vines at Clos Lapeyre: no more weedkiller, the only use of organic manures, a return to ploughing the land and to using copper and sulphur compounds and plants extracts for protective spraying. We also selectively harvest and ferment different plots separately."
