Cavesa le CAVE, le club des amateurs de vins exquis

IGP Hérault, Mas Rousseau, Pas de l'Escalette - 2022

This new parcel-based cuvée pays tribute to the rare and great white carignan, itself favoured by some of the region's star winemakers (Mas Cal Demoura, Mas Jullien, etc). The Pas de l'Escalette wines are the result of the estate's own massal selection of old vines. With this wine, the estate demonstrates its ability to produce racy whites that retain a vibrant vitality and freshness.

Protected by the causse, this vineyard is naturally irrigated by the Larzac springs. Biodiversity and the work of the soil allow the production of grapes in balance with their environment, and the estate is certified organic and biodynamic with Biodyvin.
