BACKGROUND

Jean-Claude Mas, independent winemaker, fourth generation grape grower, first generation winemaker and owner of Domaines Paul Mas, is a leader in fine winemaking in the Languedoc region of the South of France. Since taking the helm of the family winery in 2000, he has prioritized sourcing the highest quality grapes from twelve privately owned estates and premier growers in the Languedoc to make wines of authenticity and refinement. The result is a collection of magnificently charming wines that burst forward with the warmth and stunning beauty of the Languedoc. Named after the original Mas family home, Château Paul Mas and Paul Mas Estate wines showcase the terroir, complexity and style of Languedoc estate superior winemaking.

WINEMAKING & VINTAGE NOTES

The Picpoul vineyard lies along the Mediterranean Bay of Thau. This area, nearby the village of Pinet, has predominantly limestone soil, with red soils in some parts. Vineyards have been planted here for nearly 2,000 years.

TASTING NOTES

Bright gold with green tints. Very elegant with white pear and citrus aromas with mineral (flint stone) and herbaceous notes. Balanced with a good acidity, rich middle palate and fruit driven notes on the finish. An excellent companion to seafood and fish dishes, but also with white meats and foie gras, soft cheeses, tarts and fruit desserts. Also very enjoyable alone as a relaxing drink.
