Fourth-generation winemaker Jean-Claude Mas has dedicated his life to celebrating Le Luxe Rural, a term he coined to describe “the simple pleasures of life, artfully rendered by nature”. These simple pleasures include food and wine.

The founder of Domaines Paul Mas in Languedoc, Mas today presides over 15 estates sprawled throughout southern France. Dedicated to elevating the stature and quality of Languedoc wines, Domaines Paul Mas produces 115 different wines from prestige crus like Pézenas, Terrasses du Larzac, and Grès de Montpellier, as well as popular appellations like Languedoc and IGP Pays d’Oc.

Mas strives to ensure that each wine reflects its unique sense of place. “All our wines are made with one objective, to give you a unique and authentic moment of pleasure when you taste them,” says Mas. “Wine represents infinite generosity, and we cultivate that generosity.”

The jewel of Luxe Rural is Côté Mas in Montagnac. Set among 150 hectares of vineyards, olive groves and truffle oaks beside the Domaine Paul Mas luxury resort, the destination restaurant is sure to intoxicate the senses.

A spacious, artful dining room allows for effortless conversation, while the outdoor terrace is caressed by Mediterranean breezes redolent of lavender, rosemary and sea air. Beyond, azure blue sea and sky hinge together along a burnished horizon rimmed by tiny fishing villages and wind-bowed pines.  READ MORE HERE.
