There is a little road along the Martinollet small river that winds through garrigue, vineyards and olive trees, and takes you to Côté Mas. This modest estate sits in a region rich with heritage. Indeed, close by is the Saint Hilaire Abbey, where, back in 1531, the sparkling wine method was actually discovered. The first bubble, Prima Perla, was born! Then you have the legacy of the Cathar people, those men and women persecuted by the Catholic Church in the medieval times, a period in history that forged both the character and the landscapes of the place. Lastly, the rugged climate and topography create superb terroirs that produce fine chardonnay, mauzac or pinot noir grapes. Our cuvees reflect this heritage; our wines are faithful to their terroir and origins.
