Domaine Mas Nuy

You don’t have to look far to find the origin of the name of the Mas Nuy Vineyard whose owner, Belgian winemaker Pierre Urbain, lives in the village of Masnuy-Saint-Jean, not far from Mons. Acquired gradually since 2005, its 6.5 hectares of vines are surrounded by over three hectares of forest and unspoilt countryside. Planted on the schistose soil of Faugères, they produce wines with a superb minerality. Pierre Urbain’s philosophy? "To make as little as possible so as not to disrupt the balance of the natural cycle."

Le Rec

The yields, on plots intended for Rec, are limited to 25 hl/ha. The Mas Nuy vineyard produces an average of 900 bottles of this cuvée every year.

Manual harvesting in crates with selective sorting on the vine. Long, traditional maceration with regular pigeages. Matured for 15 in stainless steel tanks for the Grenache and in casks having a held several wines for the Syrah.


   Dark red robe with purplish glints. 

   Young and fruity (small red fruits and blackcurrant buds) on the nose, with a touch of vanilla. 

   Great deal of mache in the mouth. Predominantly fruity. 

   Roast partridge, red meat, certain exotic dishes.

   16-17°C. Good ageing potential.
