Brézème is a steep, south-facing hill, terraced in its higher reaches, which are home to old vines of the storied old variety of Syrah called Petite Serine. Eric set about rehabbing old Syrah vines and planting new Syrah vines and is today still its main grower. The Pergaud bottling is the oldest vines (60-70 years) of Petite Serine, a mere .5-hectare parcel.
As with all of his reds, Texier harvests the fruit in whole clusters, which are crushed and fermented with indigenous yeasts. The wine is aged for 30 months in 10-year-old demi-muids.
