Domaines Paul Mas was founded in 1892. The current owner is Jean-Claude Mas and he is without doubt the pioneer of the revival of the Languedoc as a region for quality wines. Jean-Claude describes his wines as 'Le Luxe Rural', rural luxury. He has given the Languedoc 'new world' allure with international grape varieties. 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 company in the Netherlands to also carry the high-end Grandcrus of Paul Mas.

The grapes of the Claude Val come from selected vineyards with a clay-gravel soil. The climate is Mediterranean with influences from the Atlantic Ocean. The Claude Val is a blend of Vermentino, Chenin, Mauzac, Chasan, Sauvignon and Grenache. The grapes are fermented separately at a controlled temperature of 16 degrees. This ensures that the wine retains its fruit, concentration and softness.

In the glass, the Claude Val Blanc has a lemon yellow color with a green tinge. In the nose we smell notes of citrus fruit, white flowers and tropical fruit. In the mouth, the Claude Val is remarkably fresh and certainly for a wine from this price range, the wine is very lively with lots of tropical fruit (pineapple, citrus, peach) and has a nice balance in the acids, which makes for a pleasant and good aftertaste. a delicious glass to simply enjoy, but the Claude Val Blanc is also an excellent accompaniment to dishes with white fish. Also delicious with curry with chicken.
