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.
Grenache 50%, Cinsault 30%, Syrah 20%
The grapes were destemmed and each variety was vinified separately. Gentle pressing occurred with a pneumatic press; only the free-run juice is used for our Rosé. The fermentation occurred at 17°C in temperature-controlled stainless steel for 3 weeks.
The wine was aged on its lees with regular stirring for 40 days in new coated cement vats. During the ageing process we look at maintaining a maximum fruit expression and concentration thanks to regular pumping-over.
Complex nose with cherry and strawberry notes evolving towards soft candied fruit.
The palate is rich and smooth with ripe red fruits and a well-balanced acidity.
