Offer | Mas de Cadenet Rosé, Côtes De Provence 2020
"The 2020 Mas de Cadenet Rosé has all that you ask from an organic Grenache/ Cinsault/Syrah Côtes de Provence rosé, with its crisp, fresh wild strawberry fruit, hint of herbs and long, dry, sophisticated finish."
Jonathan Ray, The Spectator Magazine
The 2020 vintage of Mas de Cadenet is superb to the delight of all our many loyal followers of this organic Provence rosé.
The vineyards of Mas de Cadenet lie in the foothills of the Montagne Sainte-Victoire, and this glorious rosé gets better and better with each passing year and their new 2020 vintage is a lovely pale (wild) salmon pink in the glass. The palate is fresh and vibrant with restrained complex fruit flavours of red berries and white summer fruit with a hint of rose petals, and just the right amount of zippy acidity to give it grip on the finish, and the alcohol is a modest 12.5%.
This is as good a rosé as you will find from Provence at an affordable price.
How does this wine taste?
Lightly coloured, with a delicate nose with scents of citrus and spices. The mouth is fruit forward and refreshing.
What do the critics say?
"Very pale pink and imbued with the fragrances of crushed stone and sun-dried herbs, the 2019 Côtes de Provence Sainte-Victoire Rosé is the embodiment of the appellation. This blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah is medium-bodied yet lively and refreshing, with white peach and melon flavors tinged with red currants, finishing cool and stony."

"Produced from organic grapes grown beneath the Sainte-Victoire mountain, this wine has plenty of ripe fruits as well as a line of freshness offering lemon and redfruit flavors. The wine is little young and will be best from late 2020."
91 points - Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast
"Diaphanous pink. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes raspberry, pink grapefruit, peach, succulent herbs and honeysuckle. Sappy and incisive on the palate, offering vibrant red berry, citrus zest and bitter quinine flavors that show impressive energy and back-end cut. The citrus and floral notes drive a long, nervy finish that shows fine delineation and mineral lift."
