The Mas d’Espanet estate is located between Uzes and Sommieres in the Languedoc, in a massif of scrubland calles Les Lens.

Following in the footsteps of a family tradition of winemakers, Denys set up Mas d’Espanet in 1980. The vineyard had been abandoned and the first task was to save the old varieties of red Languedoc grapes and to plant new white vines chosen on the basis of the soil type and the type of wines we wanted to make.

In 1999 the winery building was restored with the former barn transformed into a barrel cellar.

Notes and Reviews

Château Tasting

Cuvée Camille is a gastronomic white wine for ageing. Carefully selected vines, grapes ripened to a golden colour by the sunshine, low yields, and a lengthy maturing period all combine to create this wine’s characteristic aromatic complexity and power. There is exceptional length on the palate for this white wine, which offers an aromatic depth and complexity with almost miraculous harmony. Aromas of dried fruit, quince, honey, and gingerbread.
