Domaine Mas Paumarhel

In the heart of Languedoc, the small vineyard Mas Paumarhel is situated in a typical village between sea and mountains.

After few years of hard work in the vines, the winemaker Jean-Luc Dressayre have finally presented his first cuvees in 2007.
The grounds are not very profound and has only limited water stocks. This type of soil is perfect to grow qualitative grapes. The quality has always been the guiding principle here.

The name Paumarhel has been chosen because of Jean-Luc's three daughters:
Pauline, Marion and Helene.
