NATURAL WINE. Vegan-friendly

Grape: 100% Grenache Noir (harvested by hand)

“Mouton Blanc de Noir” (the white sheep from a group of black sheeps) is made from the black grape “Grenache Noir” from vines 400 meters above sea level. The name and label reflect that it is a white wine made from a black grape. The wine is very fresh and delicate with notes of white fruits, minerality, finishing with a pleasant acidity.
Mouton Blanc de Noir goes well as an apéritif or for salad dishes, fish, and white meat.
Mas Lasta is run by Anne-Laure Sicard, who says:
“After my agronomic engineering studies and my oenology diploma in Montpellier, my passion for the vineyards and my love of wine took me around the world (Australia, Spain, Uruguay, Canada, New Zealand and a few French wine regions).
I finally settled in Saint Privat on the high country Terrasses du Larzac in 2015.
I started up with 8 hectares of old, forgotten vines, planted in sandstone soil and my ambition was to bring this high-lying terroir back to life.
Being a fighter by nature (I am a fan of France’s women’s rugby team known as “les affamées” meaning “hungry women”), I started on 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 grower.”
