Mas de l’Ecriture – a vertical since the beginning

Mas de l’Ecriture in the village Jonquières in the Languedoc took Vinisud as an excuse (?) to show that wines from the region age excellently. Owner and winemaker Pascal Fullà invited us to a tasting of all his 10 vintages, since the start: 1998 to 2008. All wines expressed Pascal’s desire to combine elegance, power and balance. And a very good acidity (giving freshness). What’s the secret behind this acidity, we asked Pascal? “It’s the work in the vineyard”, he says, “to harvest ripe grapes but never too ripe. And then have a soft extraction and do the malolactic fermentation on the skins”. Sounds deceptively simple, doesn’t it?

    We have notes, yes, but nothing published on the internet at the moment.
