The Oenologists of France organize in Paris one of the most prestigious competitions of the wine industry: Vinalies® Internationales. For nearly a week, 130 jurors expert in sensory analysis of 40 different nationalities, meet under the presidency of a French oenologist, to blindly taste more than 3500 wines from around the world.
We received this year 3 Gold Medals and 5 Silver Medals:
Nearly 270 international wine experts from 44 countries spent the six days critically judging almost 6,770 wines from more than 150 wine growing regions all over the world.
Award-winning wines of the MUNDUS VINI Spring Tasting will be presented to the trade audience at the world’s largest wine trade fair, the ProWein in Düsseldorf, taking place from 18 – 20 March 2018, at the MUNDUS VINI Tasting Area.
“We were literally awestruck when we tasted his wines because they were so significantly better than what we have tasted in the past from this vast region. Because vineyards are relatively cheap here, Mas is able to keep prices down and deliver a lot of great wine for reasonable prices. Consumers should take advantage of the prices while this region is in its renaissance stage.”

Delighted to tell you Paul Mas Languedoc Reserve Red is Wine of the Week from Olly Smith in today’s Mail on Sunday.
“What a wine! Perfect for a strong yet silky treat, rather like a blackberry dipped in dark chocolate. A rollicking red blended form top-notch Grenache, Syrah and Carignan.”

Andreas Larsson was a firm believer in blind tasting as the only true way to taste wine. The absolute objectivity of blind tasting allows the taster to focus exclusively on his or her senses, without preconceptions about the wine clouding their judgement. Andreas focused mainly on that tasting approach when on his quest to become Best Sommelier of the World, a goal he reached in 2007; and he attributes his success largely to his dedication to blind tasting all levels of wine and spirits.
For professional blind tastings the environment is as neutral as possible, with various environmental factors strictly controlled to guarantee perfect tasting conditions: temperature, degree of humidity, air pressure, noise, smells, colours, and last but certainly not least, lighting conditions.

This year, 4 Domaines Paul Mas wines get a price : read more…
1. Earlier than ever. Started on 8th August for the Sauvignon Blanc.
2. Smallest crop and smallest yield ever. 7.2 tons/Ha on our contracted vineyards. 5.1 tons/ha on our own vineyards (AOP mainly).
3. Best ever due to sufficient rain in the winter and spring. Frost affected mostly the higher yielding vineyards
4. Although the harvest started very early compared to the average year, the ripening was quite slow, very homogenous and there were no over-stress factors.
The singularity of the year’s climate led to early grape maturity and harvesting, about a fortnight early compared to an average year. The unusual heat at times led to a healthy stress on the vines and slowed down the maturation process.

In Decanter magazine, Jean Claude Mas Astelia Limoux tasted by James Button
Our wine is part of Aldi wines tasted and rated : 90
“Made by Languedoc legend Jean Claude Mas, this 100% Chardonnay wine from Limoux has a lovely lifted lemon, apple and honeycomb aroma. The mouthfeel is broad and waxy, with a touch of grapefruit bitterness balanced by melon and floral notes. A fantastic wine.”
