The Domaine du Pas de L’Escalette
vineyards cover 10 hectares and are planted in limestone scree terraces surrounded by dry stone walls known as "clapas". They nestle at 350 metres altitude at the foot of the Larzac plateau, in the Languedoc region. The valley where the Domaine du Pas de L’Escalette
vineyards grow is north-south-facing turned towards the sunrise and the sunset. The soil has a unique water regime which is fast filtering and drying (the water flowing down from the plateau is abundant). The Larzac causse brings cool nights and acts as a great air conditioning system!
At Domaine du Pas de L’Escalette, Julien Zernott and his partner, Delphine, work the southern grape varieties as naturally as possible. The Domaine du Pas de L’Escalette vines have been grown organically, without the use of synthetic chemicals, and have been certified as such, since the 2012 vintage. The soil is ploughed in order to heighten the terroir characteristics and obtain high-quality grapes, harvested by hand with the greatest of care. Julien is also the talented winemaker at Domaine Henri Pelle in the Menetou-Salon appellation.
