Jean-Claude Mas has blazed the trail for premium winemaking in the Languedoc region of the South of France. Since taking the helm of the centuries-old Domaines Paul Mas in 2000, his driving mission has been to use only premium quality grapes to craft superior wines with a modern, New World flair. Above all else, this innovative, fourth-generation vintner strives to make wines with authenticity and refinement, the end result of which is a family of magnificently charming wines that burst with personality and express their unique terroir.

Production Area
Languedoc, France

Grape Varieties
60% Chardonnay, 20% Chenin Blanc, 10% Pinot Noir, 10% Mauzac

Vinification
Grapes undergo fermentation in stainless steel vats to create the base wine. After primary fermentation, “Liqueur de Tirage”, a blend of sugar and yeast, is added to the juice a few hours before bottling. A second fermentation then takes place in the bottle, which lasts about 3 weeks. The bottles are then gradually turned upside down in order to gather the lees in the neck of the bottle. After one year of ageing “sur pointe”, the bottles are chilled (to freeze the lees) and opened. The lees are expelled and the “Liqueur de Dosage” is added. The bottle is then sealed and released after twelve months of ageing.

Color
Pale yellow with delicate and persistent bubbles.

Bouquet
An intense and refined nose of honey, acacia and crystallized lemon.

Taste
a harmonious palate of citrus fruits. A great balance of sugar and acidity with a long finish.

Alcohol
12.5%
