Very pale with a golden cast. Rose scented, creamy raspberry fruit. There's a fullness to the weight and shape of the wine, yet it is also extraordinarily delicate, as if the berry fruit and softly subtle spices have been brushed on with a feather. The structure comes more from the taste and feel of smooth, wet river pebbles than any sense of acidity. Some blueberry, some lavender. A fine, fresh finish. A serious wine that restores my faith in Provence rosé.
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.

Located on a hillside at the highest point of the estate, La Mascaronne’s vineyard sits in sumptuous ring-shaped site, mostly composed of clay-limestone soils. At an elevation of three hundred meters, it enjoys a unique microclimate: at night, it is constantly cooler than on the shore. The vineyard’s orientation brings natural ventilation that favors the healthy development of its grapes. The amount of sunshine and rain and average temperatures are never excessive, providing ideal conditions for the vine to thrive.

On this terroir, roots reach deep down into the depths of the land, which protects the vine from extreme dryness. Irrigation is thus rendered unnecessary. Harvest takes place in the morning and is carried out entirely by hand, so that only the most qualitative berries are used.

The 2022 Vintage
In a challenging year that required great responsiveness, La Mascaronne's terroir has produced a luminous vintage with great delicacy and beautiful balance.

With bright pink and silver reflections, Château La Mascaronne Rosé 2022 expresses a beautiful intensity, between the delicacy of white peach and the vivacity of citrus fruits.

Suave but structured, fruity and lively, the wine is pleasantly refreshing on the palate with notes of pineapple.
Delicious as an aperitif or during a meal when young, Château La Mascaronne Rosé can also be enjoyed after 1 or 2 years of ageing.
