This pale-colored wine is ripe and full of wild strawberry flavors. Textured acidity gives spice and a saline tang that will soften as the wine ages a bit. Drink from late 2021. Organic. ROGER VOSS
Château La Mascaronne Rosé reveals the essence of the terroir from which it is produced. An exceptional rosé, it derives its quality not only from the grape varieties that comprise its blend but also from the soils on which the estate’s grapevines are planted. The Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah, Vermentino and Mourvèdre grapes, typical Provence varieties, are harvested at the height of ripeness.
When enjoyed young, Château La Mascaronne Rosé is delightful before or with a meal. But it is also marvelous after several years of aging, a more unusual feat for a rosé wine. The wine’s luminous pink hue makes it immediately identifiable as a Provence wine and is like a foretaste of the luscious, complex aromas of fresh, ripe fruit that it delivers.
