Jean Astruc, coachman in Limoux, has a dream: his own wine estate. The dream became reality in 1862, with the acquisition of 12 hectares of vineyard in Malras. His son Jean Astruc has the same ideal and continues to acquire land despite the crisis and his departure to the battlefields of the First World War. In the 1950s, his son Pierre inherited Domaine Astruc. It then includes more than 30 hectares of vineyard and the resources to exploit it. In 1977, after completing his studies, Pierre's son, Jacques Astruc, returned to Malras to continue building Domaine Astruc with his father.

In 2003, Jean-Claude Mas came into the picture: owner and winemaker of Les Domaines Paul Mas, a successful and independent family business in Pezenas, also in the Languedoc. He had been working with Astruc for a long time – the main source of their Vin de Pays wines – and decided to purchase the Domaine. The d'A series is the first fruit of this purchase.

The Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards of Domaine Astruc are located at the foot of the Pyrenees and this makes this part a lot cooler than the rest of the Languedoc region and that is a prerequisite for producing wines that offer refinement and elegance. The sea winds of the Mediterranean have free rein and ensure healthy vineyards without phylloxera or mold. Jean Claude chooses a high plant density so that there is a lot of competition underneath and the plants have to work and root deeply. It also ensures that yields are relatively low.

The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are fermented in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. The wine is then allowed to mature in American oak (70%, a mix of new, one and two year old barrels) and French oak (30%, one and two year old), for six months. In the glass, this Reserve Cabernet is deep purple with a garnet red glow. In the nose we smell notes of mocha, blackcurrants, vanilla and toasted bread. In the mouth the wine is full and rich in taste, fruity with soft tannins. This is simply a beautiful glass of wine and is an excellent accompaniment to grilled meat, pasta with red sauces and hard cheeses.

The Domaine Astruc has continued to grow since then and has been turned into a modern winery, which presses the grapes from over 400 hectares of vineyard, harvested by about a hundred farmers. Annual production is 21,000 hectoliters. Jean-Claude Mas enters the picture in 2003: owner and winemaker of Les Domaines Paul Mas, a successful and independent family business in Pezenas, also in Languedoc.
