Mas La Chevalière

Languedoc, languedoc France

Mas La Chevalière was established near Béziers in 1995 by Michel Laroche, after 10 years of searching for the right vineyards. Géraud Blanc heads up the winemaking here along with Grégory Viennois, who oversees the winemaking at all of the Laroche estates. 45 hectares of vines, across three different vineyards, were planted or replanted with the varieties that are best suited to the parcel and microclimate. Yields have been reduced and organic practices are being used in several of the vineyards. Irrigation is used to avoid water stress, so the wines are classified as ‘vin de pays’. The estate vineyards are supplemented by fruit from long-standing relationships with local growers who meet Mas La Chevalière’s rigorous quality standards.

The nine hectare ‘Peyroli’ single vineyard has similar limestone and clay soils to those found in Chablis. Situated at an altitude of 400 metres, this is a cooler climate site where the Chardonnay grapes are usually picked late to encourage gradual, even ripening and is therefore ideally suited to this variety.
