Mas des Étoiles
Mas des Étoiles was born in 2007 from an association between two winemaker friends, Arnaud Bladinières and David Liorit. The winery, located in the heart of the Cahors appellation, is divided into 2.5 acres of white wine and 12 acres of reds. This partnership really started in 1998, on the first day of school at the viticultural high school of Montagne in Saint-Émilion where Arnaud and David met and became close friends during their entire “lycee.” In 2002, they lost touch while perfecting their winemaking skills with internships all across the globe (Bordeaux, Burgundy, and Australia). In 2005, Arnaud came back to work at his father’s estate, Château Bladinières in Cahors. The rest is history…Arnaud and David farm their estate sustainably, all by hand, to ensure the highest possible quality of grapes. Each cuvée is vinified and aged separately in tanks, or oak barrels for the top cuvées.
Wines from Mas des Étoiles
Mas des Étoiles Cahors Petite Étoile
Blend: 100% Malbec
Aging: 18 months in stainless steel tanks, on its lees
With an intense nose of ripe, juicy red and dark fruits, and a touch of freshly dug earth, ecologically conscious Arnaud Bladinières and his 30-year-old Malbec vines take Cahors into the present day while preserving its classic roots. The round, very fruity palate has a solid structure but very soft, well-integrated tannins from a year and a half worth of aging. A great modern Malbec from Cahors, that will pair well with all your meats and heartier dishes.
