Sulphur-free wines come to London Wine Fair
8th March, 2016 by Neal Baker
Languedoc producer Domaine Paul Mas is unveiling a range of sulphur-free wines at the London Wine Fair in May.
Domaines Paul Mas is showcasing the 2015 vintage of the Cuvée Secrète red, a sulphite free blend of Merlot/Cabernet Franc, in addition to the 2015 Cuvée Secrète Chardonnay.
According to owner Jean-Claude Mas: “The 2015 harvest, which was simply of exceptional quality, enabled us to further experiment with low and sulphite free wines, due to the outstanding quality of the fruit we picked.
“We are now convinced that sulphur, albeit a useful tool for preserving wines, is not essential and we are tending to use it as little as possible – a strategy which is paying dividends for our wines.”
The Cuvée Secrète range on display at the 2016 edition of the LWF also includes a Minervois La Liviniere and a Clairette du Languedoc – an AOP situated to the north of Pézénas in the Hérault Valley.
Domaines Paul Mas will also unveil its Coté Mas Sparkling Gewürztraminer at the LWF, the first 100% Gewürztraminer sparkling wine to have been produced in the Languedoc.
“I’m excited to be showcasing such a wide variety of new wine styles at this year’s LWF, including our delicious Astélia rosé, sulphite free wines and some new sparkling wine styles”, said Mas.
