A blend of Grenache 35%, Cinsaut 35%, Syrah 20%, Vermentino 10% Michel Reybier, owner of Bordeaux château Cos d’Estournel purchased this Certified Organic estate that was once a part of Brad and Angelina’s Chateau Miraval Located in Côtes-de-Provence, La Mascaronne’s vines are planted on distinctive stone-walled terraces. Certified Agriculture Biologique since 2016, the estate’s sixty-hectare vineyard is a single, continuous plot of land surrounded by oak and olive trees. The wines of Château La Mascaronne are crafted exclusively from grapes grown on-site and include Château La Mascaronne Rosé, a fresh, balanced Rosé that expresses all the qualities of the terroir from which it is produced. Marked by a dry and hot summer, this vintage saw our deeply rooted vines resist to these conditions and give to the berries remarkable concentration. Harvested early from the 1st of September, they express the identity of our terroir with refinement and structure. Château La Mascaronne Rosé 2020 luminous pink hue makes it immediately identifiable as a Provence wine and is like a foretaste of its luscious, complex aromas. White peach, hawthorn flowers and citrus notes make for a beautifully refined nose, while the wine is suave, intensely and elegantly structured on the mouth, with a long, delicate and fresh finish. When enjoyed young, Château La Mascaronne Rosé is delightful before or with a meal. But it is also marvelous after several years of aging, a more unusual feat for a rosé wine.

    "Attractive and elegant nose, clean and with beautiful red fruits, melon and stone fruits. Ripe mouthfeel with good levels of freshness, good intensity of fruits – again melon, peach and excellent concentration. Long and layered – redcurrant and a herbal note beneath. A lovely wine!"
  • Decanter

    "“Bright rosé colour with slightly orange hue. Refined nose with aroma reminiscent of redcurrant, lemon zest, hints of peaches and tangerine in the background. On the palate mouth-watering character with freshness and fine minerality, elegant citrus fruit and hints of red currants. Good balance and length with an almost creamy texture.” Markus del Monego"
  • The Wine Advocate

    91
    "On the stony, austere side, the 2020 Côtes de Provence Rose Château La Mascaronne is a blend of Grenache and Cinsault, with small additions of Syrah, Rolle (Vermentino) and Mourvèdre. Scents of crushed stone are joined by hints of strawberries, melon and citrus on the nose, while the medium-bodied palate is linear and direct, with mouthwatering acids and a crisp, refreshing finish. Drink it over the next year or so."
  • Matthew Jukes

    "“Another stellar 2020 rosé and this time the mood is one of innate sophistication coupled with breath-taking restraint. La Mascaronne is a grand wine and one with exquisite presence on both the nose and palate. There is a graceful persistence of English rhubarb and pomegranate arils balanced by stern, unwavering acidity from the nose to the finish, marking it as wine with considerable attitude and intent and this means that it is more of a gastronomic creation than many. [...] Nothing compares to this spectacular 2020 Estate release with its slender lines, resonant palate and devastatingly dramatic finish.”"

Locations

France

Wine is being produced throughout France and has been done for over 2,500 years with certain Châteaux dating their history back to Roman times, around 6th Century BC. Ranking second in the world in per-capita consumption and first in total production quantity. More so than the overall quantity of wine is the quantity of truly great wines coming out of France makes the nation the envy of wine-making nations worldwide.

Two concepts pivotal to the higher end French wines, in particular, are the idea of 'terroir' and the Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (AOC) system. Terroir refers to the way the geography, geology and climate find their way into the glass, telling a story of the origin of the wine. The AOC was set up in 1935 and has the primary goal of protecting the authenticity of the wines and the livelihoods of the producers. Appellation rules strictly define which varieties of grapes and winemaking practices are approved for classification in each of France's several hundred geographically defined appellations, which can cover entire regions, individual villages or in some cases, like in Burgundy even specific vineyards.

Classic wine regions in France include Champagne (home of Champagne), Burgundy (Pinot Noir and Chardonnay), Bordeaux (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot), Alsace (Aromatic varietals), Loire Valley (Chenin Blanc, Crémant) and the Rhône Valley (Syrah, Grenache Mourvedre)

The Bordeaux classification of 1855 is still in use, as is the Sauternes and Barsac Classification of the same year. Wines from certain regions can be bought En Primeur, which is when the wine is sold prior to it being bottled.

Provence

Located in the South of France, the Provence wine region boasts a classic Mediterranean climate, with warm, sunny summers and adequate rainfall following mild winters. The famed Mistral wind provides an important cooling influence here. The region has become virtually synonymous with now-ubiquitous pale-pink rosé winés. These utterly drinkable, food-friendly wines consist primarily of Grenache Noir and Cinsault, and the best expressions nicely balance fresh fruit, herbal notes, and acidity. Other red varieties here include Mourvèdre, Syrah, Carignan, and Cabernet Sauvignon. The region produces small amounts of white wine as well, from such varieties as Vermentino (the locals refer to it as Rolle) and Clairette. Provence has three primary appellations: Côtes de Provence, Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence, and Coteaux Varois en Provence.
