ABOUT THE WINE
An olive-grove since the time of the ancient Gauls, the plateau near Aix-en-Provence upon which Le Domaine des Masques rests was settled by the Knights Templar of the Order of Provence in the Middle Ages. Vines were first planted in 1992, and in 2003 the estate was bought by Carl and Sophie Mestdagh. The vineyards are tended according to organic principles, although the estate has not sought certification. With duties in the cellar overseen by the famous Rhône winemaker, Yves Cuilleron, the estate is in excellent hands, and producing exceptional wines.

TASTING NOTES
Barrel-fermentation and regular batonnage (lees-stirring) gives this wine great weight and complexity; bright citrus fruit and white blossom aromas are balanced by a buttery brioche character. The finish is supple and complex, with a hint of wood-spice.

FOOD PAIRING
A good wine for a roast chicken, or fish in creamy sauces.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
The region has a long history of growing medicinal plants; and has always been a haven for healers, herbalists and 'sorcerers'; 'masco' in the Provençal dialect, which have given the estate its name.
