Mas de Cadenet Rosé Cotes de Provence Sainte Victoire 2020

Ships in 2-3 business days.
Sainte-Victoire is one of the new crus in Provence, with only 24 winemakers. Due to the special terroir and micro-climate of this area, Mas de Cadenet has more persistence and structure than a typical Provencal rosé. Cadenet employs traditional methods: free-run juice is drawn off as soon as the soft pink color begins to show during a cold maceration. 45% Grenache, 45% Cinsault, 10% Syrah. Refined, fresh, and well-balanced with an elegant fruit and beautiful hue. Certified organic.

A blend of 45% each Cinsault and Grenache, with just 10% Syrah, Mas de Cadenet's 2020 Cotes de Provence Sainte-Victoire Rose is quite pale in hue, but it offers up attractive hints of garrigue, crushed stone, strawberries, cherries and lime on the nose. Nuanced and elegant on the light to medium-bodied palate, with a long, stony finish, it's a lovely testament to the limestone-based terroir of Sainte-Victoire and a pretty good value. One of the standard-bearers of the Saint-Victoire sub-appellation, Mas de Cadenet is now into its seventh generation of family ownership. The experience and age of the vines shows, as the offerings are both expressive of their origins and of high quality, with the prices being quite reasonable.

The seventh generation of the Negrel family at this estate has produced a ripe and generous wine with red-berry fruits and refreshing acidity. The wine comes from the cru vineyards of Sainte-Victoire, helping give extra depth. Drink from late 2021. Organic.

Translucent pink. Sharply focused, mineral-accented white peach, strawberry and melon scents, along with citrus pith and floral nuances. Palate-staining red berry, blood orange, nectarine and honeysuckle flavors smoothly marry depth to liveliness. Shows firm tension and repeating minerality on the persistent, finely etched finish.
