Mas de la Dame Rosé Blend les Baux-de-Provence Rose du Mas 2010

External Review by Palm Bay International:

Rose du Mas 2012 - 90 points, Wine & Spirits/ Sisters Caroline Missoffe and Anne Poniatowski have run their family’s estate since 1995, growing olives for oil and farming 123 acres of vines in Les Baux de Provence. Their Rosé is quintessentially Provençale, from its earthy fruit to its garrigue-like herbal notes, not to mention the fresh acidity that keeps it breezy. A summertime staple.

The vineyard covers a single area of 140 acres, around 123 acres of which are currently in production. Some plots have just been replanted and are still too young to produce appellation wines, and 10 acres)of old vines have been removed. These will be replanted after five to six years lying fallow. This is necessary to eliminate viruses, as we do not use chemical disinfection. The vineyards are cultivated organically under "Qualité France" supervision. No insecticides or herbicides are used. Copper and sulphur contents are limited. The soil is worked by tilling and enriched by applying manure of organic origin. The main grape varieties are Grenache, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Mourvèdre, and Cinsault for the reds and rosés, and Semillon, Clairette, Rolle, and Roussanne for the whites. All harvesting is done by hand. Read less

Rose du Mas 2011 - 87 points, Wine & Spirits/ This is pleasantly rustic, its sweet cherry and strawberry flavors slightly jammy, scented with thyme and rosemary. It would be delicious with roast pork, especially a fattier cut larded with herbs.

Rose du Mas 2008 - Year's Best & Best Buy, Wine & Spirits/ Salty minerality draws out the strawberry taffy flavors of this organically grown rose, lively acidity keeping it lifted. Give it a few months to settle down, then serve with a rosemary-larded pork tenderloin. Listed among the Year's Best Rose.

Rose du Mas 2010 - 88 points, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar/ Light orange. Fresh red berries and blood orange on the fragrant nose, with notes of white pepper and lavender adding complexity. At once juicy and expansive, offering ripe and red fruit and citrus flavors and slow-building floral character. Rich but energetic and dry, finishing with good cut.

Tasting Highlights: Outstanding full-bodied reds from some of southern France’s top producers and the latest rosés from Provence/ Berry and melon flavors fill this peppery rosé; red peach and spice carry the rich finish.

Weekly Wine Picks: Imported Rose/ The small southern French appellation Les Baux de Provence is the first to demand that all wines be produced biodynamically. This very light pink wine, a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault, is edgy but not severe, with light, racy flavors of pink grapefruit and hints of mint.

/ Slightly confected on the nose, showing cotton candy and bubble gum aromas, but you’ll also find plenty of strawberry-raspberry flavors. Very fruity and clean, with a fresh finish.
