Saint Privat - Languedoc-Roussillon
Natural wine. Vegan friendly
Area: Saint-Privat – Languedoc-Roussillon
Grape: 100% Syrah (harvested manually)
"Là-Haut" means "up there". The wine comes from vineyards located 450 meters above sea level. The wine is just 3 months in steel tanks, so it is a pure fruit bomb! Fresh aromas and flavors of red and dark berries with slightly spicy notes.
Only 1800 bottles per year.
The wine is good as an apéritif, tapas, light starters, fresh cheese and fruity desserts.
Mas Lasta is run by Anne-Laure Sicard, who harvested her first harvest in 2016. She is far from a novice, as after obtaining her diploma in oenology in Montpellier, she worked at Château Latour, after which she went around the world as a winemaker ( Spain, Australia, Canada, Uruguay, Argentina).
Back in 2015, she took over 9 hectares of vines located at 450m altitude on the northern border of the Terrasses du Larzac. Hence the name of the domain, Mas Lasta (the last vines).
Anne-Laure Sicard says:
“Being a fighter by nature (I'm a fan of France's women's rugby team known as “les affamées”, meaning “hungry women”), I started natural viticulture by converting the vineyard to organic farming. The terroir is tough, but I'm even tougher, and I'm always busy doing something! After planting another 4 hectares, I plan to diversify the vineyard by adding fruit trees and starting a partnership with a sheep farmer.”
