‘Arrogant but not pretentious’

At the beginning of the 2000s, the French, perceived as arrogant, no longer had a foothold abroad. Within a couple of years, Arrogant Frog has made itself the mascot of Jean-Claude Mas’ estates. The humble winemaker shows that with creativity, knowhow and a sense of humor, one can make Southern French wines shine around the world and give pure pleasure, at a reasonable price!

Award-winners, the wines are Vegan certified and crafted in the objective to ravish and please consumers in an approachable way.

Blend: 90% Chardonnay, 10% Viognier

Winemaking Each grape variety destemmed and vinified separately, no skin contact, low temperature racking at 8°C. 3 weeks fermentation under low controlled temperatures (18°C maximum) with selected yeasts. From the 2nd week of fermentation, 30% of the Chardonnay finishes its fermentation in oak barrels and is then aged in oak barrels for 4 months. The remaining Chardonnay and Viognier are aged in stainless steel tanks.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

A bright gold yellow hue. The nose is elegant with notes of tropical fruit, peach and white flowers, hints of vanilla and toasted bread. A fresh and mellow wine with a persistent length.

Best served at 10 to 12°C with seafood and fish dishes, white meats, blue cheeses, and fruit-based desserts. Also enjoyable on its own.
