For the first time, we are going to be at Imbibe Live on 2nd & 3rd July at Olympia.
We have hand-picked a selection of wines from our portfolio that will appeal to sommeliers and wine buyers from all over the country and they are available through our network of wholesalers both in London and regionally.
Food and wine is a subject very close to our hearts, even more so since we opened the doors of Restaurant Côté Mas, at our estate near Pézenas. Come and see us on F36 and find out more about our amazing Japanese chef, Taichi Megurikami and some of the dishes on the menu – local Languedoc prepared with a subtle Asian twist in places.
Our top 5 picks from Domaines Paul Mas at Imbibe Live 2013
1. THE CÔTÉ MAS RANGE
A classic Mediterranean white blend, a rich fruity red, an elegant, dry rosé and an innovative Picpoul Frizzante make up the Côté Mas range, all packaged with striking Art Deco labels in the vibrant colours of the Languedoc.
2. MAS DES MAS PICPOUL & MAS DES MAS SAINT-CHINIAN
The Mas de Mas range represents the essence of each Languedoc appellation. Zingy and zesty, Mas des Mas Picpoul (Selected TOP100 Languedoc Wine competition 2013) is a versatile wine which can be enjoyed by the glass or matched with seafood. Made from old Syrah, Carignan & Grenache vines, Mas des Mas Saint-Chinian shows off the spice and complexity of the Languedoc with remarkable value for money.
3. CHÂTEAU PAUL MAS BLANC BELLUGUETTE 2012 – NEW WINE
A blend of 40% Vermentino, 30% Roussanne, 20% Grenache and 10% Viognier, this new white wine from Château Paul Mas is made from fruit picked from the Belluguette and Cres Ricard vineyards. Selected in the TOP100 Languedoc Wine Competition
4. CHÂTEAU PAUL MAS CLOS DE SAVIGNAC 2011 – CHATEAU PAUL MAS’ SIGNATURE
This blend of 55%Syrah, 25% Mourvedre and 20% Grenache comes from a 3hectares vineyard within the cru appellation Grès de Montpellier. The grapes come from low-yielding old-vines planted at 120 meters above sea level and facing South-East.
5. MAS DES TANNES RÉSERVE ROUGE 2011
Covering 40 hectares on the Nicole Estate near Montagnac, 20 hectares of the Mas des Tannes vineyard is certified organic and the other 20 hectares is currently in transition to organic. For Domaines Paul Mas, sustainable viticulture and care for the environment is not simply an option but a necessity. Light tractors are used on the vineyard to prevent soil compaction. A special ‘intercep’ plough is used to weed around each vine instead of using herbicide. Wild flowers and grasses are grown between the rows of vines to promote biodiversity throughout the vineyard.
Sopexa will be running a masterclass entitled “Authentic and Natural” featuring wine regions with unique individuality. Two of Domaines Paul Mas’ wines will be showcased:
