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

External Review by Palm Bay International:

/ 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.

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

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.

The breathtaking 16th century wine estate of Mas de la Dame is situated in Les Baux de Provence, a charming medieval village perched atop a rocky outcrop in southern France’s Apilles Mountains. The essence of this rugged area’s haunting, windswept beauty is captured most evocatively in the celebrated paintings of Van Gogh. Mas de la Dame, or “farm of the women” is owned by Anne Poniatowski and Caroline Missoffe who, together with consultant Jean-Luc Colombo, the most influential winemaker in the Rhone Valley, have redefined the potential of this ancient terroir. For over 30 years, grapes for Mas de la Dame wines have been grown and vinified using only natural processes, entitling them to be certified as AGRICULTURE BIOLOGIQUE (organic) by Qualite France. Production Area Grapes are from Les Baux de Provence in a mixture of clay and chalk soil. Only organic farming. Grape Varieties 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and 20% Cinsault Vinification Harvested by hand during the last two weeks of September, this wine begins as a red, however, after 4-8 hours juice is pulled off or bled out of the tank. Vinification is done at low temperatures (15/16°C) in stainless steel tanks and lasts for 18 days. No Malolactic fermentation is done with this wine. This elegant rose matures on its lees with each variety kept separate. Blending then takes place followed by a gentle filtration with egg whites. To insure a fresh, clean wine, bottling is done in mid-December. Color Tender pink Bouquet Fresh strawberries, peaches, and roses with light exotic notes. Taste Subtle flavors of fresh berries and fennel with a flowery finish Alcohol 12.85% Serving Suggestions To be served chilled with any kind of relaxed meal, (barbeque, salads, or pesto pasta) fish and grilled meat.

The perfumeyquality turned off some tasters, while others (like me) loved the intensity.

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.
