This beautiful domaine (located just to the north of Béziers) is at the forefront of the surge in quality that has been seen in the Languedoc over recent years. Low yields, hand picking and organic viticulture are the order of the day here and the results are rich, silky smooth wines with fantastic “goût de terroir”.

Owner and winemaker Lidewij van Wilgen worked in advertising back in her native Holland, before deciding to move to France and pursue her dream of being a winemaker. After graduating from the viticultural college in Montpellier she has spent the last seven years honing her craft and is now considered to be one of the region’s most exciting vigneronnes.

Mas des Dames translates as ‘Estate of the ladies’ as, for three generations before Lidewij arrived, only daughters had been born into the family that owned the estate. Now Lidewij lives there – with her three daughters.

The range of wines includes an elegant white made from 100% Grenache Blanc and a sumptuous rosé that is fresh and crisp, yet with the presence and body to work wonderfully with food. However, it is the estate’s red wines that have established Lidewij’s reputation thanks to their combination of classic Languedoc character, generous fruit and luxurious texture. In addition to great reviews in the Wine Spectator, Mas des Dames was recently named as the ‘Number 1 New and Upcoming Domaine’ in Tom Stevenson’s Wine Report (2009).
