    Winemaker Notes

    The Blanc Mediterranee displays medium lemon color with an intense nose exuding notes of citrus, grapefruit, and a touch of tropical fruits. Vibrant with aromas of citrus fruits and a hint of tropical fruits. Easy-going and fruity wine with a well-balanced acidity.

    Blend: 35% Grenache Blanc, 25% Vermentino, 25% Chardonnay, 15% Sauvignon Blanc

    Cote Mas, Languedoc-Roussillon, France
    Image of winery
    Fourth-generation vintner Jean-Claude Mas has blazed the trail for premium winemaking in the Languedoc region. Since taking the helm of the Mas family’s centuries-old estate in 2000, his driving mission has been to use only premium quality grapes to craft superior wines with a modern, New World flair. Beginning with the original 86-acre estate, he has since grown the winery to a 1000-acre enterprise with a commitment to sustainable viticulture; he also contracts with 80 growers that collectively farm nearly 2000 acres, making Domaines Paul Mas one of the Languedoc’s most influential wineries. Above all, Jean-Claude strives to make wines with authenticity and refinement, the end result of which is a family of magnificently charming wines that burst with personality and express their unique terroir.

    Languedoc-Roussillon

    An extensive appellation producing a diverse selection of good-quality and value-priced wines, Languedoc-Roussillon is one of the world’s largest wine-producing region, spanning the Mediterranean coast from the Spanish border to Rhône. Languedoc forms the eastern half of the larger appellation, while Roussillon is in the west; the two actually have quite distinct personalities but are typically grouped together. Languedoc’s terrain is generally flat coastal plains, with a warm Mediterranean climate and a frequent risk of drought. Roussillon, on the other hand, is defined by the rugged Pyrenees mountains and near-constant sunshine.

    Virtually every style of wine is made in this expansive region. Dry wines are often blends, and varietal choice is strongly influenced by the neighboring Rhône Valley. For reds and rosés, the primary grapes include Grenache, Syrah, Carignan, Cinsault, and Mourvèdre. White varieties include Grenache Blanc, Muscat, Ugni Blanc, Vermentino, Maccabéo, Clairette, Piquepoul and Bourbelenc.

    International varieties are also planted in large numbers here, in particular Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. In Roussillon, excellent sweet wines are made from Muscat and Grenache in Rivesaltes, Banyuls and Maury. The key region for sparkling wines here is Limoux, where Blanquette de Limoux is believed to have been the first sparkling wine made in France, even before Champagne. Crémant de Limoux is produced in a more modern style.

    With hundreds of white grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a soft and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is more fragrant and naturally high in acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
