La Forge Estate
Côteaux du Languedoc
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. La Forge Estate wines symbolize the fusion of the old and the new worlds of winemaking. Old world wines with new world attitude showing an expressive, round and aromatic style, brightened up by a subtle dose of oak barrel ageing.WINEMAKING & VINTAGE NOTES `
