Astélia Sauvignon Blanc
Every aspect of Clos Astélia bears the draughtsmanship of Jean- Claude Mas, of Domaines Paul Mas. From the house, to the cellars and the bottles. He has tried to bring together all his many passions into one estate.
Astélia Sauvignon Blanc comes from the best vineyards across Jean-Claude’s seven estates. Two vineyards in particular, the ‘La Plaine’ plot, at Château de Conas, on loam soils and ‘Altros Dos’ from the chalky soils of Château Arrogant Frog, are both farmed organically according to bio-dynamic principles.
The vines, 15 years old on average, are pruned using the Cordon de Royat method, with a planting density of 6000 vines per hectare.
The soils are chalky clay and black clay, chosen especially to create their top wines.
Astélia is an ode to Jean-Claude Mas’s four daughers – Astrid, Élisa, Apolline and Estelle.
Astélia embodies all the passion and distinction of Jean-Claude Mas’s signature wines; a selection of plots managed according to sustainable and bio-dynamic principles.
This Sauvignon displays aromas of white flowers and citrus fruits, followed by notes of honey.
It is full in the mouth, soft and crisp, with fresh lemony notes on the finish.see less
