Astélia wines come from the best vineyards across Jean-Claude Mas’s eleven estates, farmed sustainably and according to biodynamic principles.Astélia Cabernet Sauvignon comes from two particular vineyards, “Dausso” at Château des Crès Ricards and “darre Le Mouli” at Château Teramas Astruc. The wine is matured for ten months in oak barrels to develop layers of forest fruit and mocha aromas, leading into a rich and elegant flavour.Astélia Chardonnay comes from two particular vineyards, “Cayrol” at Château Paul Mas and “Las Roquos” at Château Arrogant Frog. This rich and mellow Chardonnay has been aged in oak barrels for six months ; it reveals aromas of brioche, hazelnut and pineapple. On the palate, it is smooth, well rounded and offers a long finish.Astélia Sauvignon comes from two particular vineyards, “La Plaine” at Château de Conas and “Altros Dos” at Château Arrogant Frog”. This Sauvignon displays delicate aromas of white flowers and citrus fruits followed by honey notes. It is full in mouth, soft and crisp, with fresh lemony notes at the end. This wine has an outstanding personality, it will pair very well with grilled king
prawns or salmon gravlax served with asparagus espuma.
Aside from wine, what I know best are my three daughters : Astrid, Elisa et Apolline.
