Welcome to my latest installment of Wine Writer Confidential, where I spill, thrill and chill you with all the news unfit to print about my world of wine writing.
It’s rosé season, which means time to drink some pink!
#wineStudio | “Rosé en Mas” – Domaines Paul Mas | June 6th, 6-7 p PST
Not all rosé comes from Provence!
Join me and my #wineStudio compatriots this Tuesday, June 6th from 6-7 p PST as we taste through a trio of tasty rosé wines from Domaines Paul Mas of Languedoc, including a sparkling Côté Mas Crémant de Limoux Rosé NV, plus the popular Côté Mas Rosé Aurore 2016 and Arrogant Frog Rosé 2016.
Nestled in the foothills of the Pyrenees, Languedoc enjoys a rich winemaking history, often claiming fame as France’s oldest sparkling wine region.
Domaines Paul Mas encompasses a sprawling portfolio of wine estates dotting Southern France, helmed by Jean-Claude Mas, or ‘The Man,” a fourth-generation vine grower and first generation wine maker. Jean-Claude Mas describes his wines as “Rural Luxe,” or artful appreciation of life’s simple pleasures.
You can follow along on Twitter at #wineStudio – hope to see you on June 6th at 6 p PST!
