A formidable combination of terroirs that synthesizes the strong characteristics of the two shores
One of the remarkable points of the vineyard is its exposure on the hillsides, offering a large amount of sunshine thanks to a very predominantly south-east, south-west exposure. The vineyard offers a high average planting density with 5200 vines / hectare. The average age of the vineyard is just over thirty years. Merlot is present on 80% of the grape varieties and supplemented with c abernet franc, cabernet Sauvignon and recently Malbec.
The Haut-Peyrat vineyard grows on limestone and clay-limestone soil.
It has a rare characteristic, that of bringing together the terroirs of the right (clay-limestone) and left (clay-gravel) banks on the same property. This palette of soils is conducive to the quality and complexity of the wines and it is these singularities that attribute Haut-Peyrat many similarities with the great Bordeaux terroirs.
