About The Wine
Inside the bottle: The Mas de Cadenet Blanc is made of 100% Rolle (also called Vermentino.) It's interesting to taste this wine grown on limestone soil compared to those famously grown in Corsica, Ligurian and Sardegna, all of which are grown on schists or granites. Yes, kind of a geeky comment, but what you will find is a wine with very high-tones, striking focus and that beautiful limestone “fairy dust” powdered sugar nose, rather than the savory, salty, briny wines grown on schist and granite. This wine, sculpted by cold nighttime air is a wine of balanced tension and edge. It is a wine for those who enjoy acidity in their Mediterranean white wines.
Terroir: Limestone for days! On top of that ancient limestone slab rests beautiful orangish-red (Iron for days!) clay that is decorated with shiny, stark-white limestone pebbles and round river rocks. As mentioned above, the nighttime air keeps this place cold and fresh, while the days are long and rich with direct sun that is kept in check by a constant wind from the Alps.
