Jean Claude Mas

GRANDS CRUS AND GRANDS VINS DU LANGUEDOC

 

Jean-Claude Mas, founder of Domaines Paul Mas in 2000, has launched a complete range under his own name, wines with true Languedoc character, a sense of place, a history, but most important of all, these are fine wines made to give the utmost pleasure to the drinker.

Those wines represent the diversity of terroirs within the same appellation and also the essence of each traditional appellation in the Languedoc. They are a fusion between the tradition of winemaking and the new approach to wine, embodied by Jean-Claude Mas.

The Crus are Pézenas, Grès de Montpellier and Terrasses du Larzac, the appellations Minervois, St Chinian, Corbières and Picpoul de Pinet.

Astélia

LA PASSION DE L’EXCELLENCE

Astélia wines come from the best vineyards across Jean-Claude Mas’s eleven estates, farmed sustainably and according to biodynamic principles.

Astélia Cabernet Sauvignon comes from  two particular vineyards, “Dausso” at Château des Crès Ricards and “darre Le Mouli” at Château Teramas Astruc. The wine is matured for ten months in oak barrels to develop layers of forest fruit and mocha aromas, leading into a rich and elegant flavour.

Astélia Chardonnay comes from two particular vineyards, “Cayrol” at Château Paul Mas and “Las Roquos” at Château Arrogant Frog. This rich and mellow Chardonnay has been aged in oak barrels for six months ; it reveals aromas of brioche, hazelnut and pineapple. On the palate, it is smooth, well rounded and offers a long finish.

Astélia Sauvignon comes from two particular vineyards, “La Plaine” at Château de Conas and “Altros Dos” at Château Arrogant Frog”. This Sauvignon displays delicate aromas of white flowers and citrus fruits followed by honey notes. It is full in mouth, soft and crisp, with fresh lemony notes at the end. This wine has an outstanding personality, it will pair very well with grilled king prawns or salmon gravlax served with asparagus espuma.

La Forge Estate

LA FUSION  DES MONDES DU VIN

La Forge Estate wines symbolize the fusion of the old and the new worlds of wine.

La Fusion

La Forge Estate wines symbolize the fusion of the old and the new worlds of wine, as well as the fusion between carefully selected grapes from our best contracted vineyards and an expressive, round and aromatic style, brightened up by a subtle dose of oak barrel ageing. The range has most classical grape varieties like chardonnay or cabernet, as well as more autochthonous ones such as carignan, mourvèdre, marsanne or viognier.

Château Paul Mas

THE ORIGIN

On the banks of the River Hérault, not far from Château Paul Mas near Pézenas, the legend of Vinus the heron began.

Château Paul Mas is made of 2 estates: the Castle and a 25-ha vineyard (61 acres) in Conas, near Pézenas; the cellar and an 80-ha (197 acre) vineyard in Nicole, near Montagnac.

Château Crès Ricards

GRAND CRU TERRASSES DU LARZAC

This estate was created in 1960, at the place we call Crès Ricards, in the village of Ceyras. Fifty years later, Jean-Claude Mas acquired its 28 hectares (69 acres), fascinated as he was by the fantastic terroir of the Terrasses du Larzac, which produce silky wines with intense flavours.

Our “garage” wine

At the foot of the Mont Baudile, this vineyard offers a unique geography, with its red earth, slates and pebbles.

Yields are low and the berry selection is very strict which is essential to produce generous wines! Here we produce the cuvées Oenothera, Stecia, Hauts de Milési, Alexaume as well as a few varietal wines.

Château de Martinolles

SPARKLING WINES AND CRU LIMOUX

At the end of a path which follows the Martinollet brook, twisting and turning through wild scrubland, vines and olive

groves sits Chateau Martinolles. It is a place steeped in the extraordinary heritage of this region.

“La Perle”

The Saint-Hilaire monastery actually used to adjoin the property, and it was there in 1531, that the method for making sparkling wines was discovered. The first bubble came into being.

The Cathares, hunted down by the medieval Catholic Church, have left an indelible imprint on the countryside and

the spirit of its inhabitants. The lie of the land and the unpredictable climate create the most perfect conditions in

which to grow Chardonnay, Mauzac and Pinot Noir.

Château Lauriga

Swept by the Tramontane wind, the vineyard is planted on the sandy, free-draining soils of the Pliocene hillsides so typical of the Aspres region.

Interestingly, part of the Lauriga vineyard is planted on very old terraces where the soils are full of pudding stones which heat up quickly in the sun and have always been valued by winemakers throughout the generations.

The diversity of the Lauriga terroir makes it possible to produce wines with a subtle palette of aromas and flavours.

For Château Lauriga, caring for the environment by preserving biodiversity is a top priority, as well as looking after the people who work in the vineyard.

When the vineyards were restructured in the 1990s, they were replanted in relation to the path of the sun (to optimise the effects of photosynthesis on the complexity of aromas) and also the direction of the Tramontane, to avoid wind damage to the vines.

This ancient winegrowing region is situated in Aspres, in the commune of Thuir, where the aperitif Byrrh comes from.  With 60 hectares of vines surrounding a renovated house and a modern cellar with high-tech winemaking equipment, Lauriga produces top quality wines. 

The magic combination of the Tramontaine terroir, grape varieties and winemaking expertise has produced a range of wines with complex, subtle aromas and flavours. The range comprises white wines made from dry Muscat, Grenache, Macabeu. The IGP Côtes Catalanes, the AOP Côtes du Roussillon Rosé and Red, ‘Le Cadet, ‘Le Château,’ and the Cuvée Prestige which are matured in oak barrels as well as regional specialities Maury l’Ambre and Muscat de Rivesaltes.

L’Emblème

The story goes that Vinus the heron preferred eating grapes grown on clay & limestone hills of the hillsides of the Hérault Valley to the fish form the river. Domaines Paul Mas adopted Vinus as its emblem, symbolising the quality that this hillside sites can produce. The vineyards yield small quantities of grapes, concentrated in both colour and aroma, resulting in wines wich are true to the terroir.
