An icon of the Languedoc region, Peyre Rose is, first and foremost, the non-conformist work of Marlene Soria. Created at the beginning of the 90s with modest ambitions, the estate quickly became an icon, the reference of a still nascent Languedoc vineyard eager to bring its great wines to the international scene.
Adulated by Robert Parker, Peyre Rose swiftly caught the attention of critics and wine lovers alike. Forever in demand, his wines are an inspiration, models of temperance and expectation, bearing the stigma of time, revealed by measured and patient maturation and exemplary organic farming.
The three reds (Belle Léone, formerly Syrah Léone, Les Cistes, formerly Clos des Cistes and Marlène n°3), which are predominantly Syrah, full-bodied and energetic at birth, thus take on the patina of time with unparalleled grace, brilliantly transcending the paradox between a delicate, perfumed aroma and the sublime concentration of their origin. Endowed with captivating finales, they are great wines for aging, marketed by the estate after long years of evolution in the cellar.
