Château La Mascaronne is located in the village of Le Luc en Provence, on a sumptuous ring-shaped site where Nature seems perfectly intact. Unparalleled, the views of the estate’s age-old stone-walled terraces, magnificent hilly contours and borders of olive trees are truly breathtaking. Convinced by the potential of La Mascaronne, Michel Reybier purchased the estate in 2020. He is also the owner of Cos d’Estournel, a Second Growth in Saint-Estèphe, Domaine Impérial Tokaj-Hétszölö, the Jeeper champagne house and La Réserve hotels in Paris, Geneva, Zurich and Ramatuelle. However, the winemaking is headed up by Nathalie Longefay, Technical Director and Oenologist who has worked for La Mascaronne as wine consultant for over 10 years.
Located on a hillside at the highest point of the estate, the vineyard is mostly composed of clay-limestone soils. The vines here are at an elevation of three hundred meters and benefit from a unique microclimate: nighttime temperatures are constantly several degrees cooler than along the shore. The vineyards are dry farmed and meticulously crafted; this wine’s quality doesn’t come just from the grapes but from the ancient soils on which the vines are planted.
A classic Provence blend of grenache, cinsault, syrah and vermentino made with no oak to showcase the wonderful delicate aromas and flavours.
Marked by elegance and delicacy, it shows notes of peach, apricot, and white flowers. Then comes the freshness, carried by mouth watering citrus fruits and apricot notes that give it an intense fruity finale and structure.
Delightful with a whole range of foods or as a summer aperitive but also fantastic after several years of ageing if you’re after a more unusual feat for a rosé wine.
