Berry Bros gives La Peira Property a Great Write-up (Just in time for Jeremie Depierre’s Birthday)
by La Peira
We really want to start posting about the work on the vineyard in 2009 but….
Jérémie Depierre, whose winemaking experiences at La Pèira have seen him change from a youth into somewhat of a battle-scarred veteran, is turning 30 on the eleventh of this month.
We’re trying to make him feel good about this momentous occasion and thought this might help.
We’ve worked with Jérémie from when everything was running on belief and scraps of faith. So no change there…

Discover these four fantastic wines from one of our most exciting new finds from the Languedoc, La Pièra. Located close to the iconic Mas De Daumas Gassac and la Grange des Peres, this property seems destined, at the very least, to share their very fine reputation.
New In: La Pèira
I have, for several years, been privileged to taste alongside Andrew Jefford on the Decanter Wine Awards Languedoc panel. Andrew’s knowledge of the region and his beautiful descriptions of the wines are without equal. It was therefore hugely exciting when he introduced me to La Pèira, with the unequivocal assurance that this was probably the most exciting new property that he has ever come across in this region.
Tasting the wines, it was easy to see why; every single wine is an absolute stunner; from the magisterial complexity of the white, Deusyls, through to the three reds which pretty much cover the spectrum of expectation from a great red wine; Les Obriers is fruity yet dense, Las Flors is rich yet magnificently intricate and La Pèira en Damaisèla is a terrific vin de garde, worthy of extended cellaring.
One may not be able to ascent the poetic Olympus of Jeffordian description, but one is certainly fully in agreement with his opinion and completely bowled over by the quality of the wines. Located close to the iconic Mas De Daumas Gassac and la Grange des Peres, this property seems destined, at the very least, to share their very fine reputation.
