BACKGROUND

Innovation and a passion for the Languedoc are what drives Jean-Claude Mas. Since taking the helm of his family’s winery in 2000, he has prioritized sourcing the highest quality grapes to craft wines of authenticity and refinement. His range of Côté Mas Sud de France 1L blends convey the warmth, beauty, and grace of this southern French region. With playful labels of rustic picnic scenes, they embody Jean-Claude’s philosophy of le luxe rural, or rural, everyday luxury.

20% of estate vineyards are farmed organically; the rest is farmed using sustainable practices, certified under Terra Vitis.

WINEMAKING & VINTAGE NOTES

Vines are planted on clay and limestone soils at an elevation of 820 to 920 feet asl. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats. After primary fermentation, the “Liqueur de Tirage,” a blend of sugar and yeast, is added to the juice a few hours before bottling. After one year of aging, the lees are expelled and the “Liqueur de Dosage” is added and aged an additional twelve months.

TASTING NOTES

An intense and refined nose of honey, acacia and crystallized lemon lead way to a harmonious palate of citrus fruits and balanced acidity. An excellent aperitif that pairs well with all styles of cuisine
