Domaines Paul Mas was founded in 1892. The current owner is Jean-Claude Mas and he is without a doubt the pioneer in the revival of the Languedoc as a region for quality wines. Jean-Claude characterizes his wines as 'Le Luxe Rural', rural luxury. With international grape varieties he has given the Languedoc 'new world' allure. And with his fashionable wines from local grapes, he has made the local character of the Languedoc hip again among wine lovers. Hubrecht Duijker rightly calls Jean-Claude Mas a 'wine wizard' and at Grandcruwijnen we are the only ones in the Netherlands who also carry the high-end Grandcru's from Paul Mas.

Paul Mas's portfolio contains many (small) wineries and one of them is Domaine les Verrieres. The domain was founded in 2004 to meet the desire of some city residents for rural tranquility and was taken over by Paul Mas in 2018. Les Verrières are small plots surrounded by green cypresses, olive trees and fig trees. The wines of Verrières make the most of their richness thanks to the vines that root deeply to capture the water and aromas that make them unique. The 22 hectare vineyards are located between Montagnac and St. Pons de Mauchien, close to the Grés de Montpellier appellation and at the heart of which lies an amphitheater, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea and backed by the Cévennes. Les Verrières are small plots with arid soils, limestone, clay and limestone, surrounded by green cypresses, olives and figs. Born in a climate of high contrast and violence typical of the Languedoc region, between cool nights, warm days and strong winds. Verrières wine draws the best from its heritage, from deep-rooted vines to obtain water and nutrients, deep in the soil creating a unique typicity. The vines have to work hard and take deep roots and then we know that this is a recipe for beautiful wines. The vineyards are managed according to the principles of sustainable agriculture. In the tab: Attachment you will find a number of photos and a presentation about this beautiful Domaine les Verrieres.

Jean-Claude Mas, of Domaines Paul Mas, has added Domaine Les Verrières, in the Grés de Montpellier appellation, to his portfolio of estates and 'Les Pierres Plantées' is the first blend overseen by him as winemaker and owner. The 'Les Pierres Plantées' plot is located not far from the Mas de Tannes estate and enjoys an excellent microclimate. The Domaine les Verrieres Les Pierres Plantées is a blend of 90% Syrah, 10% Grenache noir and is the top model of Domaine les Verrieres. The grapes are destemmed after manual picking and undergo a separate vinification for each grape variety. Cold pre-fermentation maceration (1 night). Fermentation under controlled temperature conditions (max. 28°C) with selected yeasts. This organic certified wine is aged 100% in stainless steel to avoid any external influence. The fruit that is picked for the Les Pierres Plantées is the top of the top and the stainless steel aging ensures that the naturally firm (in smell and taste) grapes are not further influenced by extra tannins and wood tones and this makes this a fantastic elegant glass of wine.

In the glass, the Domaine les Verrieres Les Pierres Plantées has a garnet red color with purple reflections. Complex aromas of black fruit with a woody tip on the nose. The Domaine les Verrieres Les Pierres Plantées is a lush and persistent wine, the tannins are melted and well balanced.
Drink this beautiful wine at around 15/17°C and of course this wine is delicious to enjoy standalone, but also perfect with grilled lamb chops with thyme or beef stew.
