This delicate pale pink rosé offers a beautiful mineral freshness, revealing gentle aromas of citrus, red fruits and flowers. Enjoyable by itself, it’s also a terrific wine to have along with food, pairing easily with Mediterranean dishes such as tartare, seafood and ratatouille, as well as exotic foods.
The Négrel family’s Mas de Cadenet estate is located in a breathtaking landscape at the bottom of the Sainte Victoire Mountain, near Aix-en-Provence. The family have a winemaking history dating back to 1813, and today they make a mix of wines, with rosé their main focus. The Mas de Cadenet Rosé is their flagship cuvée and is served at various stellar addresses, including the Hôtel de Crillon in Paris, L’Eden Roc at Cap d’Antibes, Le Café de Paris in Monaco and Le Grillon on the Cours Mirabeau in Aix en Provence.
Sainte Victoire is a premium sub-region within the Côtes de Provence, with a particular terroir and a strict set of wine-making rules, requiring lower yields and a final tasting to ensure that the quality is high enough to meet the designation. The Négrel family believes strongly in organic farming, and viticulture and winemaking here are certified organic by the Bureau Veritas.
