The 2021 vintage of Mas de Cadenet is superb and better than ever, to the delight of all our many loyal followers of this organic Provence rosé, including myself.
The vineyards of Mas de Cadenet lie in the foothills of the Montagne Sainte-Victoire in the heart of Provence. Their glorious new 2021 vintage is a lovely pale (wild) salmon pink. It is fresh, crisp and vibrant with subtle and complex 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. The alcohol is a modest 12.5%.
This is as good a rosé as you will find from Provence at a great price - it is delicious.

"A wine from the Negrel family in Provence Sainte Victoire which I have enjoyed vintage after vintage. It's delicate and summery, with watermelon and rose-hips, a small redcurrant fruit quality. In the mouth a pleasing richness of sweet and ripe strawberry fruit, but then it is driven along by a sweep of citrus and acidity, the finish tangy and beautifully dry and savoury."

"Very pale pink and imbued with the fragrances of crushed stone and sun-dried herbs, 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 flavours tinged with red currants, finishing cool and stony."

"The 2021 Mas de Cadenet is the Negrels' flagship vino from the foothills of the Montagne Sainte-Victoire and - guess what? - is a blend of Grenache and Syrah. With sweetish, ripe berry fruit in the mouth, it's enjoyably dry and spicy and slips down a treat."
