The Paul Mas range of wines is produced from our vineyards on the Nicole Estate in Montagnac, near Pézenas. In the rolling hills of the Hérault Valley and just a few kilometers from the Mediterranean coast, this region within the Languedoc is ideal for the production of premium wines. Vinus the heron features on all the labels from Domaines Paul Mas. The story goes that he was often seen in the Paul Mas vineyards, preferring the ripe grapes to the fish from the river. La Forge Estate wines symbolize the fusion of the old and the new worlds of wine, as well as the fusion between carefully selected grapes from the best South of France vineyards and an expressive, round and aromatic style, brightened up by a subtle dose of oak barrel ageing. Jean-Claude Mas has significantly grown and enhanced Domaines Paul Mas with the acquisition of several carefully selected properties throughout the Languedoc. His portfolio of estates now accounts for over 440 acres of premium vineyards, planted with 25 different varieties. Jean-Claude Mas, independent winemaker, fourth generation grape grower, first generation winemaker and owner of Domaines Paul Mas, is a leader in fine winemaking in the Languedoc region of the South of France. Since taking the helm of the family winery in 2000, he has prioritized sourcing the highest quality grapes from twelve privately owned estates and premier growers in the Languedoc to make wines of authenticity and refinement. The result is a collection of magnificently charming wines that burst forward with the warmth and stunning beauty of the Languedoc.
The La Forge Viognier displays a golden yellow with green tints, the bouquet is rich and elegant with violet locked in with succulent amounts of stone fruit, honey and hints of vanilla. The palate fresh and lively with spiced peach and pear, floral and persistent, finishing rich with even more candied fruit and spice.
