In Mas de Theyron, we are working with a respectful attitude toward our environment and Nature, as it is the most essential source of the elaboration of our fine and elegant wines.
Here is one of the most ancient vineyards of Languedoc. Nowadays, we are taking care of 20 ha of different grape varieties as Syrah, Grenache, Carignan, Cinsault, Merlot, Marsanne, Viognier, etc. These are contributing to the richness of our blends.
In the vineyard, the soil is naturally cultivated with organic compost and soil nutriments; any pesticides since the reorganisation of the parcels in 1998 were used. The process for the AB label-Organic Farming was completed in 2010.
Why are we producing laying down wines? Because it is especially during the winemaking process that our grapes reveal their great wines potential. Our “terroir” is geologically and typically as St-Christol’s one. Our Vin de Pays are growing on a mix of clay and limestone soils in different slopes covered with gravel and our Appellation-AOC Wines are on a “Villafranchian” type of soil (4 to 1 million years B.C.), covered with pebbles.
Harvest of our parcels starts with a selection of complete maturation area and all is hand-harvested. A rigorous selective sorting and the soft destalking and trampling of the grapes allow the development of an optimal quality. Traditional and classic vinification at controlled temperature, completed with a long-term maceration contribute to the soft extraction of aromas, colours and tannins.
Aging of red wines is done in cement vats, wooden vats and French oak barrels. We are using around 20 % of new barrels every year, in order to keep a very fine progression of our wines during 9 to 18 months.
Our different “cuvees”, bottled at the estate, are pursuing their maturation before marketing in our large temperature controlled stoking cellar.
Therefore, for the best tasting qualities of our Languedoc wines and your fulfilment, our current vintages are in between 5 and 8 years old. Besides fashion and New World influence, wines of Mas de Theyron belongs to the best discoveries you could do, for a truly appreciation.
