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 vine is inextricably linked to the land’s History as demonstrated by the fragments of amphorae dating back to Roman Times found on the property.
But 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 vineyard is on a south facing plateau, 250 meters above sea level. Five hectares are in the Côtes de Provence Appellation and forty hectares are on the subappellation Côtes de Provence of Sainte Victoire.
The Mas de Cadenet produces 60% of rosé wines, 30% of red wines and 10% of white wines. The grape varieties grown in the vineyard are Rolle, Syrah, Grenache, Cinsault and Cabernet-Sauvignon. The yield of the vines is naturally kept low and ensures high quality wines (45hl/ha on average).
Style: Its original blend with a large proportion of cinsault offers rose flower aromas with great fineness, the complement of syrah and rolle give a boost with a citrus profile.
The fineness and freshness of this rosé cannot leave you unmoved; a smile comes naturally to the lips … The perfect rosé for aperitifs and summer grills.
Tasting Notes: Clear and pale colour. Floral and fruity on the nose. The mouth is lively with layers of peach and citrus drops. A lively wine best served at 10°C.
