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.

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!

“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

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.

“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.”
