Arrogant Frog Chardonnay Viognier
'As the fourth generation wine grower, Jean-Claude Mas, The Humble Winemaker, was born in a total wine growing environment in the Languedoc in the town of Pézenas. In the beginning of the 90’s he was involved with wines like Château Pape Clément or Château Talbot in Bordeaux where he worked for 4 years.
This experience was critical in his approach to great wine tanks to the famous Bordeaux vintners he worked with. In the mid 90’s he went back to his roots: while being a Director at a large winery in the south of France renowned for the quality of its varietal wines, he then prepared the first blends to be bottled on the family estate. The first bottle of wine under his family name was a 1995 which today drinks exceptionally well.
Jean-Claude Mas is often described as one of the pioneers of the « new Languedoc » or the « new age » of wine in France, one of those who work to restore the status of the region where wine culture is older than 2000 years.
He now exports “Luxe Rural” to share its values way outside of Languedoc.'
