OAK TREES, GARRIGUE... AND VINES

Mas Seren is a vineyard located in the foothills of the Cevennes on six hectares of land perched at an altitude of 300m, situated just above the village of Monoblet. The site is surrounded by natural beauty, with plants of the garrigue and oak trees protecting the vineyard.

The vines grow on undulating slopes with soil type varying from red sandstone, shale, to limestone flints.

The maturity of our vines varies from the youngest at 4 to 8 years old whilst the older vines are around 30 to 50 years old. We grow a combination of white grape varieties (Vermentino, Roussanne, Grenache Blanc and Viognier) and red wine varieties (Cinsault, Grenache and Syrah) in both young and old form.

 

OUR WINES

We chose this vineyard because it has such varied soil type,an interesting climate and is a beautiful place.

The hot summer days that contrast with the cool mountain nights, slow the progression towards maturity of our grapes and give to their juice the typical and characteristic flavour of this unique land, flavour that we enhance through our work so that it finds expression in each of our vintages where the aromatic intensity, depth and sweetness are highlighted by a pleasant freshness.

Although the vineyard is on a single area, each section of ground has its own unique character of climate, soil and grape variety, and we adapt our vinification techniques to take this into account.

We plough in winter to aerate our soils and hoe throughout the spring to reduce weeds. On plots that require it, we control weeds with a mulching mower.

Grape yields are naturally light, from 25 to 30 hl / ha. We prune the vines to balance each strain and we rigorously remove buds to encourage a good distribution of grape bunches on the vines. Through this dual approach, we are able to reduce the risk of diseases with the help of the wind and by allowing air to circulate with ease around the foliage, so raindrops or condensation dry quickly.

Harvest dates are decided by tasting the different grape varieties every day until we are satisfied with their maturity. Generally harvesting our 6 hectares is spread over a month to follow the rhythm of each grape variety ... Hand-picked of course!

Mintaka

Silver medal in the Competition of independant wine makers 2014

Gold medal in the Competition of wines from Gard 2014

Silver medal in the Competition of independant wine makers 2013

A powerful red wine where the fruit is fully crystallised and the spices exhale. It has a concentrated palate with dense tannins that open up and blend harmoniously due to the wine’s slow and lengthy elaboration. Yet even so, like a gift from the Cévennes, there is a surprising fresh light touch on the finish.

To be drunk between 16° - 18°

Keeps well for 6 – 8 years

Available for year 2011

Public price 17€

(Professional price on demand)

 

Serving suggestions :

Obviously an ideal wine for beef or duck, whether roasted, grilled or served with a sauce. Enhances a lightly fried foie gras, a lamb stew, venison or even dishes based on offal such as kidneys, sweetbreads or veal liver in a sage and wine sauce…

A wine which drinks perfectly with cheese dishes such as raclette, fondue, tartiflette or any good quality cheeseboard.

Your tastebuds will sing on a new note drinking this wine with a strong chocolate or coffee flavoured dessert, or by accompanying it by macaroons or preserved candied fruits…
