Arrogant Frog is an estate-bottled wine created and produced by Jean-Claude Mas, 4th-Generation Winemaker. Steeped in legacy, and heritage, Jean-Claude’s unwavering commitment to creating superior wines is his direct response to an “arrogant” assumption that the Languedoc region can’t produce world class wines. This passion has resulted in the domaine becoming the largest privately-owned winery in France outside Champagne, and Arrogant Frog becoming an international success with its engaging, easy-going, and elegant style.
Languedoc (France) - between the Mediterranean Sea and the Hérault Valley.
85% Chardonnay, 15% Viognier.
De-stemmed grapes are vinified separately at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks for 3 weeks, without skin contact. After the second week of fermentation, 30% of the Chardonnay finishes its fermentation in oak barrels and remains in oak to age for 3 months. The wines are blended and allowed to rest before bottling.
Pale gold with green tints.
Elegant aromas of tropical fruits, with peach and white flowers and hints of vanilla.
Well-rounded and smooth with refreshing acidity.
Serve lightly chilled with seafood and fish; will also complement sushi, white meats, blue cheeses and fruit desserts.
