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
Grapes are hand-harvested and undergo fermentation in stainless steel tanks for two weeks at a temperature of 57-59°F. 15% of the blend undergoes malolactic fermentation before the wine is matured for four months. The wine is filtered and fined before ageing one year in bottle prior to release.TASTING NOTES
Bright gold straw color with yellow tints. Lovely flavors of peach, dry fruits and vanilla. A rich and mellow wine with a long and toasty finish. Enjoy as an aperitif. Pairs especially well with seafood and fish dishes, but also with white meats and foie gras, soft cheeses, tarts and fruit desserts.
