Domaine du Pas de l’Escalette
Les Clapas, 2016

 

Terrasses du Larzac

€29.50

750ml Bottle

This blend of Syrah, Carignan and Grenache really reflects the minerality of the soil of ‘les clapas’ (ancient rock walls and large stone piles). The Syrah is pressed in whole bunches bringing aromatic complexity to the wine and freshness. Concentrated aromas of red fruits. Beautiful and vibrant on the palate and very persistent finish.

Poujols is the postage-stamp-size village where Domaine du Pas de l’Escalette lies, just North of Lodève, in the Northern section of the Terrasses du Larzac at an altitude reaching 300m. It is a unique area and one of the coolest in the Languedoc.
