Le Mas de Mon Père Quitte ou Double 2014 Languedoc-Roussillon, France
Made solely from the Chasan variety, a cross between Chardonnay and Palomino, this is a white wine full of complexity and energy. Notes of apple, pear, fresh straw, butter and honey. Fresh, round and light but also intense with gentle notes of citrussy bitterness on the finish.
About the winemaker
Le Mas de mon Père is located in the Malepère appellation – the appellation found at the most western point of the Languedoc region in France. Frédéric Palacios runs his five hectares of vines organically and grows eight different varieties on lime-clay soils: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Carignan, Malbec, Cinsault, Grenache and Chasan. The local climate is a combination of maritime and Mediterranean climates. Frédéric, who is also a talented golf player, made his first vintage at Le Mas de mon Père in 2005. Just like him, his wines display energy and a heart-warming and complex personality.
