Mas des Tannes Classique Blanc
WHY WE LOVE IT
- Sourced on a 60-ha vineyard in Montagnac. It is protected by pine trees and the garrigue and nourished by the mild climate of Mediterranean Sea, which is nearby, and the healthy northern wind. It is rich in organic life deep in its clayed-limestone soils, which never came in contact with synthetic chemicals.
- Produced from organically grown grapes
Varietal Composition: 80% Chardonnay, 20% Grenache Blanc
Elaboration: Destemming, pressing under inert gas. Separation of free run juice and first press juice. Fermentation in vats for 3 weeks under controlled temperatures (63° F – 65° F). A part of the final blend is aged in barrels on fine lees for 3 months, the rest is aged in vats on fine lees for 3 months with regular stirring.
Tasting Notes: Dominant floral and white fruit. Rich, full-bodied, powerful, long finish, with notes of finely smoked notes. Complex and versatile
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. These 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. Mas des Mas is an invitation to journey into the heart of the main crus and appellations of the Languedoc.
