Mas de la Dame ‘La Gourmande’ Les Baux de Provence 2009

Mas de la Dame is a family estate headed by 4th generation winemakers Caroline Missoffee and Anne Poniatowski, great-granddaughters of the estates founder Auguste Faye. The estate is comprised of 740 acres total, with 140 acres of vineyards and 70 acres of olive groves, all existing harmoniously with the surrounding garrigue environment. They have been practicing organic viticulture for over 30 years, and utilize natural processes during winemaking, such as limiting sulphur amounts. The painting depicted on the label is by Vincent Van Gogh, he “had been dazzled by this very special light, and stopped by the side of the road to paint our very own Mas de la Dame”.

Dark garnet in colour with aromas of wild berries, licorice and black pepper. Vibrant flavours of lush baked cherry and tart red current comprised the medium body, whilst crushed black peppercorn, anise and traces of menthol engagingly lingered between each sip. Charming and plush, this is a fantastic glass on its own, or with a wide variety of dishes.
