Charming & beautifully made, flavours of blueberries & raspberries with a genteel touch of spice & cocoa.
Grape Varieties: Carinena/Carignan Cinsault Grenache/Garnacha Syrah/Shiraz
Style: Elegant, fruity
Drink By: 2017
Les Pensées has a subtle, more feminine elegance. Made predominantly from Grenache, with some Syrah (30%), Cinsault (10%) and Carignan (10%), it is peppery, concentrated and intense, with round tannins, red fruit (strawberry, raspberry) and a long finish. Decant for several hours to appreciate it at its finest.
Enjoy with roast rib of beef, vension with mushrooms or chargrilled lamb cutlets with rosemary.
The wines of the Mas de L'Ecriture are produced in the south of France on the magnificant clayey limestone terroir at the foot of the Larzac plateau. The vineyards are cultivated with the utmost respect for nature and tradition. All the work in the vineyard is done by hand. The wines ally finesse and strength, freshness and balance.
When Pascal Fullá founded Le Mas de l’Ecriture in 1998, there was nothing there; he began with a blank canvas. Aged 42, with a background in law and twenty years experience of office life, it was time for a radical change. He bought vines from five different winegrowers in the Terrasses du Larzac area, built a winery, and started ploughing a whole new furrow.He had wanted to make wine for a long time, driven by a deep-felt need to leave his mark on the world: "I called the domaine Le Mas de l’Ecriture, because although I believe strongly in the power of words, I feel that actions speak just as loudly; wine was going to be my new mode of expression. In a relatively short space of time – a decade – I have travelled a long way. The journey has been challenging, but ultimately rewarding. The last ten years have been one (very) small step in the world history of wine, but a giant leap for Le Mas de l’Ecriture. I strive for perfection, ponder each and every decision, and never do things by halves. The evidence of this thoroughness and thoughtfulness is, I hope, reflected in my wines. With Le Mas de l’Ecriture entering its second decade, I have great hopes and a clear vision: to become one of Languedoc-Roussillon’s leading producers of subtle, complex wines." - Pascal Fullá speaking in 2008.
