- The Property -
Gascon pride in the heart of Albret...
With its unique geographical, climatic and geological configuration, the Pays d'Albret is in a protected and mysterious setting, nestled between two rivers. Enriched by its long and famous history, the region of Nérac and its wines, in particular the wines of Buzet, enjoy a worldwide reputation.
Cradled by the Baïse and the Gélise, Château Pierron is marked by their influence, complex and delicate, multiple and subtle. Straddling three appellations, Buzet, Armagnac and Côtes de Gascogne, Château Pierron likes to take advantage of the diversity of soils and colours.
Because our products are unique and our identity so singular,
we are members of the union of independent winegrowers.
The vineyard of Château Pierron has existed for more than a century, and is among the oldest properties of Buzet. Located on the heights of Nérac, it covers 26 hectares planted on a large plateau in a single block.
Its complex soils are mostly clay-limestone, as can be seen from the outcrops of stone, extracted from the land through work in the vineyard. This unique terroir is accentuated by the regularity of the relief, consisting of a plateau and gentle slopes, allowing a regular and balanced water supply and guaranteeing excellent soil drainage.
The region's microclimate and the altitude of the estate (130 m) complete a remarkable natural equation.
Pierron is a mosaic of colours and atmospheres, a landscape that combines Tuscan elegance with Gascon authenticity. Added to these benefits generously provided by nature are a passion for working the vine and the search for excellence.
Taking over from the Herail family in 2007, the owners of the estate, two people with a love for their region of origin, have invested courageously to support and develop this quest for quality.
The property is committed to an integrated farming approach, in order to offer healthy, high-quality products that respect this fragile natural balance, to which the winegrower owes so much.
