To celebrate the warm British summer, Domaines Paul Mas will be exhibiting for the first time at the Sud de France festival on the 31st of August. The Sud de France “joie de vivre” festival brings the Languedoc-Roussillon region of France to the centre of London. The festival will stretch along the river from the Riverside Walkway to the Bernie Spain Gardens and will include an authentic food market, pop-up restaurants, talks from food and wine producers and experts

We have put together a selection of wines crafted by owner and winemaker Jean-Claude Mas which truly reflect their sense of place. Must-tries include:

–          Paul Mas Vermentino 2012: Bronze – Decanter World Wine Awards 2013, Bronze – International Wine Challenge 2013

–          Paul Mas Estate Marsanne 2012: Bronze Medal – International Wine Challenge 2013, Selected TOP100 UK Languedoc Roussillon 2013

–          Paul Mas Estate Malbec 2011: Originally from South-West France where it was known as ‘the black wine of Cahors,’ and more migrant to Argentina, Jean-Claude Mas has brought Malbec to the Languedoc to produce to a ripe, full-bodied wine. The black wine is back!

–          Château Paul Mas Belluguette 2012:  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 TOP100 Languedoc Wine Competition 2013

–          Château Paul Mas Clos de Savignac 2011: This blend of 55% Syrah, 25% Mourvedre and 20% Grenache comes from a tiny vineyard within the ‘cru’ appellation Grès de Montpellier. The grapes come from low-yielding old-vines planted at 120metres above sea level and facing South-East. A powerful and complex wine.

During the festival, we will also be running a Twitter competition which will give you the chance to win tickets for the Three Wine Men in London.  Keep an eye out for it and follow on twitter @PaulMasSUK to enter the draw!
