It was a really nice fruity red with the depth and richness I needed on a cold wintery night home alone. As I sat back to enjoy the wine with my simple meal of steamed home grown veggies, I searched out a little information about Paul Mas. I discovered he is a wine maker I already knew. He makes a very affordable and drinkable range called the Arrogant Frog (or in English here). We have this quite a bit at our French classes - and we just love the label design.
Looking around the Paul Mas websites, I enjoyed the chance to read the french, but even more so, loved the pictures I found. There's something ever so regal about the french wine aristocracy. Don't you just love this Chateau? and it's location is just stunning....So while I'm not in France, but wishing to enjoy a little bit of la vie Francaise, I'll keep a bottle of Paul Mas close at hand, and dream of the day I can actually visit the wineries of South France.
Next week however, I have to make a presentation to my French class about somewhere I'd like to visit in France, and I will be presenting the Champagne Region and cooking a little Champagne Jelly as presented by Gabriel Gate on the Taste of the Tour for Stage 4 of this years Tour de France. I might share some of my presentation here later next week..
