Innovation and a passion for the Languedoc are what drives Jean-Claude Mas. Since taking the helm of his family’s winery in 2000, he has prioritized sourcing the highest quality grapes to craft wines of authenticity and refinement. His range of Côté Mas crémant wines are made in the traditional method, whereby the second fermentation takes place in the bottle. They are produced at the Château de Martinolles estate in Limoux, the birthplace of sparkling wine production in France! Indeed, close by the Côté Mas restaurant is the Saint Hilaire Abbey in Limoux, where, back in 1531, the first sparkling wines of France were produced.


Vines are planted on clay and limestone soils at an elevation of 820 to 920 feet asl.

Winemaking & Aging

Vines are planted on clay and limestone soils at an elevation of 820 to 920 feet asl. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats. After primary fermentation, the “Liqueur de Tirage,” a blend of sugar and yeast, is added to the juice a few hours before bottling. After one year of aging, the lees are expelled and the “Liqueur de Dosage” is added and aged an additional twelve months.

Tasting Notes

An intense and refined nose of honey, acacia and crystallized lemon lead way to a harmonious palate of citrus fruits and balanced acidity. An excellent aperitif that pairs well with all styles of cuisine.

Gold Medal & Best Buy

Toasty aromas of brioche, fig and roasted almond with a tangy, delicately effervescent medium body and a piquant, dry, lemon, nectarine and mineral accented finish. A wonderful mouthwatering sipper or table sparkler, especially with shellfish. - July 2013


Limoux, a village in the foothills of the Pyrenes in southwestern France, has a long tradition — likely longer even than Champagne — for making sparkling wines.  Côté Mas, led by Jean-Claude Mas and his encompassing 15 properties covering about 2,000 acres, is one of the leading producers in the Languedoc.  A masterful blend of Chardonnay (60%), Chenin Blanc (20%), Pinot Noir (10%) and Mauzac, this Crémant de Limoux is a great buy.  Neither soft nor aggressive, a good spine of acidity balances subtle fruitiness.  It delivers far more elegance than the price would suggest, which makes it an excellent choice as an “everyday” bubbly.  I recommend keeping a couple of bottles cold for when friends drop over. - April 2021


This sparkling opens gently, with aromas of apple, pear and soft floral notes. Dry with a refined moose. The mouthfeel has a creamy texture and subtle citrus and acacia notes. Can drink now or lay down for three to five years. —J.T.

Best Buy

This crémant opens with notes of yellow apple, melon rind and citrus pith, with just a touch of buttered toast. Made from 60% Chardonnay, 20% Chenin Blanc, 10% Pinot Noir and 10% Mauzac, it's medium in weight yet zingy and zippy in acidity, with tart peach and pineapple accents on the close. - L.B.
