Paul Mas wines are the result of a symbiotic relationship between an extraordinary region for producing wines, passion for the vineyard, respect for the grapes during vinification, and great blending and aging knowledge. Paul Mas 1892 wine is a tribute to Raymond Mas, Jean-Claude’s grandfather. It commemorates his way of farming the vineyard, without using any chemical products, as well as his traditional way of making wine, respecting the fruit of the vineyard. His hard work and appreciation of the artful techniques enabled him to create his wines.
Jean Claude Mas is one of the most dynamic winemakers I've met over the past 15 years. He has reached well beyond what one could expect to accomplish in such as short amount of time, and I believe this is largely due to his ambition and innovative spirit. "JC" as he is called by friends and family, really wants to push the envelope of quality and estate-driven wine production for the Languedoc region in Southern France. We got to know each other in 2018 when my family and I were in Europe. JC said he was open for a meeting and we snuck over on a cheap flight from Venice. At one point we were at dinner with my two boys and three of his four girls (all under 10 years old) and we looked at the clock... it was 2am and the kids were still up! We had so much to talk about. JC is such a creative thinker and one of the leaders for the region.
