Le Mas de l'Ecriture 'l'Emotion' 2014

Languedoc & SW France, France

Buy Now:

€24.00
Crimson colour with earthy, savoury flavours of wild berries, garrigue herbs, raspberry and tar. Fairly dry, with grainy tannins, but softens nicely over the course of the bottle to finish almost like a Pinot!
 
Try with beef shin pie, Comté cheese or minty lamb kebabs.
 
Le Mas de l’Ecriture, run by Pascal Fulla (who enjoyed 20 years as a 'juriste', or legal expert, before turning to wine) and his daughter Lea, is located in the sunny south of France, a short spin from Montpellier. The superb terroir, between the Mediterranean and the Larzac plateau, features rugged, limestone soils swept by the mistral and tramontane winds. The wines of Mas de l'Ecriture have been certified organic since 2012. L'Emotion is a traditional blend of Syrah/Shiraz (35%), Grenache (30%), Carignan (22%) and Cinsault (13%).
 
Known formerly as ‘Coteaux du Languedoc Terrasses du Larzac‘, the youthful southern French appellation of  'Terrasses du Larzac' was approved by INAO mandarins only in 2014. The region, located NW of Montpellier, encompasses 2,000 hectares of vines, 60 producers and 5 cooperatives. Terrasses du Larzac must by law be red, and made from a minimum of three varieties from Grenache, Mourvedre, Carignan, Syrah and Cinsault.

The Vine Route

Tom Fiorina

“To say that Fullá is a perfectionist is like saying that fellow Catalan Salvador Dalí was a skilled draftsman. This is a jewel of a vineyard."

Jamie Goode, Wine Anorak

"Pascal Fulla's wines are among the best wines being made in the Languedoc today." 

Pascal Fulla, winemaker

"Making wine has helped me rediscover joy in day-to-day life, allowing me to carve out my own existence ... it’s what gives me the desire to carry on."
