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 Rhone winemaker, Yves Cuilleron, the estate is in excellent hands, and producing exceptional wines.

TASTING NOTES
Pressed gently to minimise extraction of tannins; 6 months in barrel prior to release. Fresh and spicy, with blackberry fruit and white-pepper spice aromas. Supple on the palate; very easy to enjoy.

FOOD PAIRING
Ideal with cold-cuts; also a good choice for spare ribs.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
Certified organic. Best enjoyed young, although this wine should age well until 2025.
