Domaine du Pas de l'Escalette

Le Pas de l’Escalette is the historic trail linking the Mediterranean plain to the high Larzac plateau. Sandwiched between the warming Mediterranean and the cooling northern mountains, Larzac is blessed with an ideal mesoclimate for indigenous grapes Carignan, Grenache and Syrah. That makes for a longer, tempered ripening season and grapes that retain their balance and acidity. Julien Zernott and Delphine Rousseau acquired this estate in 2003. He was well established in the Loire Valley as a consulting oenologist. Julien and Delphine farm old stone terrasses the right way. They work by hand, avoid chemicals in favour of plant-based vine treatments. They farm in limestone-rich north-facing vineyards that permit the crafting of wines with a degree of freshness to complement their Mediterranean warmth. Equal to the rugged terrain and dramatic scenery, the wines of Pas de L’Escalette are elegant, rounded and well balanced. They display wonderfully fresh and fragrant savoury aromatics.
