Three Paul Mas Wines from Languedoc

Three organic wines from Languedoc's Paul Mas

The Arrogant Frog range from Paul Mas is distinctively and quirkily presented; by contrast, with its heavier bottle and cleaner look, the Cuvée Secrete is more conventional and classier.

Arrogant Frog Chardonnay 2014 [Lily Pad White], Pays d'Oc ripe tropical citrus with musky melonskin, warming sweet spices and a clean freshness; substantial and classical warm-climate white.

Adept and thoroughly enjoyable.

Match with roast white meats

Arrogant Frog Ribet Rouge "Rural" 2014, Pays d'Oc fruit-forward with ripe mulberry, blueberry and bramble fruit, sweet spice, low-but-fine tannins and just enough acidity; alcoholic on the finish in a warming sort of way.

A juicy quaffer or match with game and fruit-sauce, such as duck with cherries.

Cuvée Secrete No Added Sulphur, Pays d'Oc M/CF blend; darker and more substantial with coffee, dark fruit, green herbs and pencil shavings; sweet black fruits, plum and garrigue with sweet spices.

Substantial and hefty - impressive in a big-and-muscular sort of way. Good.

Match with game such as quail, boar or venison.
