Château Jérémie Terroir des Corbieres
WHY WE LOVE IT
Elaboration: Separate vinification for each grape variety. For the Carignan, after selective sorting, the intact bunches are placed in vats and subjected to carbonic maceration. Grenache and Syrah are fermented for 5 days under controlled temperature, followed by a 3-week maceration. After the malolactic fermentation we blend the wines. 30% of the wine is then aged in American and French oak barrels for 6 months.
Tasting Notes: Beautiful aromatic intensity where black fruits and figs dominate. Supple and fruity; notes of cherry and fresh nuts, supple and integrated tannins. Keep between 4 and 7 years.

Domaines Paul Mas owes its beginnings to Auguste Mas who bought the first family vineyard in 1892. Auguste was the great-grandfather of current owner Jean-Claude Mas. The business is named for Jean-Claude’s father, Paul, who gave his son 35 hectares in 1987. Now Domaine Paul Mas owns several wineries in the region, including Château Jérémie.
Château Jérémie is located in the charming village of Fabrezan in the Corbières region, at the foot of L’Alaric, It lies only about 20 miles from the Mediterranean Sea.
