Pas De L’Escalette Petit Pas Rouge, Domaine du Pas de L'Escalette, Terasses du Larzac, Languedoc 2020
Grenache 40%, Syrah 40%, Carignan 20%
Wines from the hot, dry Larzac can be big and boozy; this however is lively, pure and perfectly balanced. No oak, bottled in the summer following harvest. The biodynamic approach to viticulture, light-footedness around the Goblet-trained vines and fast draining soils combine to make an extremely charming, mineral wine driven by purity and acidity.
