Region: France - Languedoc
Terroir: Terrasses du Larzac
Pascal Fullá gave up his legal career in 1998 and acquired five parcels of vines in the Terrasses du Larzac area of Languedoc just North of Montpellier, built a winery and Mas de l'Écriture was born. Fifteen years later his three wines, L'Écriture, Les Pensées and L'Émotion have altered the perception of Languedoc and brought Pascal to the forefront of the local winemaking community.
Pascal does not leave anything to chance and he brings an extraordinary eye (and nose) for detail to his winemaking. He harvests each of his plots and vinifies them separately - only blending his wines after the product of each of the separate plots is completed. The results are three spectacular wines of enormous quality and character.
From just 10 hectares (25 acres) of vines, Pascal grows Syrah, Grenache, Carignan and Cinsault at the foot of the Larzac plateau on stony, sandy clay where the excellent drainage forces the vines to put down deep roots. Having always farmed naturally and with minimal intervention, the domaine applied for organic certification in 2009 and received Ecocert certification for the 2011 vintage.
