This Estate was created in 1960, at the place known as Crès Ricards, in the village of Ceyras. In 2010 Jean- Claude Mas acquired the 27 ha (69 acres) belonging to the Châteaux, extending the estate to 42 ha in 2013. He was fascinated by the fantastic terroir of the Terrasses du Larzac, which produces silky wines with intense flavors. At the foot of the Mont Baudile, this vineyard offers a unique geography, with its red earth, shale and pebbles. Yields are low, strict grape selection and carbonic maceration produce generous wines. In 2012, Jean-Claude Mas extended the vineyards, which now represent 39 hectares. The wine appears lemon and clear, with a mix of stone fruit, accompanied with expressive passion fruit and somewhat floral on the nose. The palate is full of apricot and passionfruit, white flowers and honeysuckle, finishing fresh and long with underlying vanilla.
