Grenache Cinsault Syrah
COTES DE PROVENCE SAINTE VICTORIA, France
The history of the Mas de Cadenet starts in 1813 when the Negrel Family acquires the Estate. The Mas de Cadenet is emblematic of Provence. It is a longstanding "Love Story" between a family and its land. Today Guy Negrel runs the Estate with the help of his children Maud and Matthieu Negrel. The Mas de Cadenet is located in a breathtaking landscape at the bottom of the Sainte Victoire Mountain, near Aix-en-Provence. This scenery was a never ending inspiration for the Master of Impressionism, Paul Cézanne. So we could say that the "pictureperfect" Estate is like a painting! The vineyard is on a south facing plateau, 250 meters above sea level. The Mas de Cadenet produces 60% of rosé wines, 30% of red wines and 10% of white wines in AOP Côtes de Provence - Sainte Victoire. The grape varieties grown in the vineyard are Rolle, Syrah, Grenache, Cinsault and Cabernet-Sauvignon. The Family strongly believes that organic farming is the best way to express the minerality and the nuances of the terroir. It is also an ethic based on the « Respect » of the work accomplished by the ancestors and on the "Love" for future generations who will inherit this land.
The wine is pale in colour, the nose is delicate with complex scents of fruits and flowers. On the palate, agood balance btween freshness and volume.
Francois Millo, director of the Provence Wine Council, shows off some rosé wine grapes and talks about the secret of Provence wines -- harvesting very quickly and preventing oxidation.
