Paul Mas Estate Marsanne 'La Forge'

Marsanne is a traditional grape of the Rhône Valley in France, though it is relatively rare to see it bottled as a single varietal wine.

This example from Paul Mas’s ‘La Forge’ vineyard in the Languedoc is truly lovely, perhaps picked just a little earlier than some to retain it agility and freshness.

Tasting Notes:

It has a beguiling nose, a bowlful of ripe pears and peaches, tiny Riesling-like floral and wax nuances, and a hint of oatmeal and almond from partial barrel ageing.

It is a well rounded wine with fresh acidity and an elegant finish with notes of honey.

Round, succulent and fleshy-fruity on the palate, there is texture and a little spice and toast, but it’s clean as a whistle into the finish.

Lovely on its own, but could take everything from Chinese food to white fish in its stride.
