Wine maker notes
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.

Technical notes
60% Chardonnay, 20% Chenin Blanc, 10% Pinot Noir, 10% Mauzac Alcohol 12.5%

Producer
Fourth-generation vintner Jean-Claude Mas has blazed the trail for premium winemaking in the Languedoc region. Since taking the helm of the Mas family’s centuries-old estate in 2000, his driving mission has been to use only premium quality grapes to craft superior wines with a modern, New World flair. Beginning with the original 86-acre estate, he has since grown the winery to a 1000-acre enterprise with a commitment to sustainable viticulture; he also contracts with 80 growers that collectively farm nearly 2000 acres, making Domaines Paul Mas one of the Languedoc’s most influential wineries. Above all, Jean-Claude 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.
