Château Paul Mas is a family business with 200 hectares of vineyard in the hills of the Herault valley in the Languedoc in the south of France. Situated near the Mediterranean Sea, near the small town of Pezenas, not far from beautiful, magnificent historical sites and the Canal du Midi.

The soils of the vineyard consists of clay, clay and loam soils, overlooking the Thau. Each wine has its own personality, which brings out the best of the soil type.
The story of the wine began in 1892 ……
The Mas family was originally a peasant family. In August 1892 Auguste Mas began with a 22-hectare vineyard. In 1934, his son Raymond expanded considerably from the estate, in 1954, his brother Paul and his wife on the estate. The domaine grew to a total area of 300 ha. In 1987, the brothers went their separate ways and put Paul Mas and his son Jean Claude make the tradition of wine produced. The range of wines is impressive. Jean Claude makes sure to put together a wine distinguished, with a subtle balance and lots of fruit, nice texture and a unique identity.

 

The color is garnet red. The aroma of blueberries, red peppers and spices is subtle. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and ripe fruit, good acidity and a nice length in terms of finish.

Great with the barbeque, beef stew, pasta dishes, hard cheeses and chocolate cake.
