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.

The Laurinya of du Château Lauriga belongs to Domaines Paul Mas but is a real Château. Château Lauriga was originally an authentic family estate, which has been owned by the French-Catalan Clar family for many years. A few years ago, Jean-Claude Mas was given the opportunity to take over the family domain. The dessert wine (Vin Doux Naturel) from Chateau Lauriga is a 100% Grenache Noir AOP - Grenat de Rivesaltes

The wine comes from a vineyard located on clay and limestone, with gravel. The age of the vineyard is around 25 years old and is located close to the Mediterranean Sea at an altitude of between 60-120 meters. The Grenache grapes are picked by hand when they have already seriously dehydrated - so minimal juice and maximum flavors. Traditional vinification with a long maceration. The wine is enriched with neutral alcohol (96%) to stop fermentation and retain residual sugar. Then we cool it and daily battonage takes place (once a day, no more) so that the must remains in contact with its lees.

In the glass, this desert wine is deep red in color. on the nose the wine is intense with aromas of blackberries, raspberries and cherries. In the mouth the freshness is striking with many red and black currant fruits; good balance with freshness and integrated tannins. Some licorice returns in the aftertaste. This is a delicious glass to start your meal with and a perfect accompaniment to sweet and sour meals and of course chocolate desserts.
