Negrel 2010 - Mas Cadenet, Saint Victoire, Provence

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

Surprise ! There are not only rosé wines in Provence… Indeed, if the region that lies just behind the Riviera is better known for its rosés, there are amazing terroirs for great red wines. Mas Cadenet displays a deep cherry colour and exhales a powerful nose that let guess a lot of complexity. The palate confirms it. The aromas of spices and blueberry are perfectly enhanced by fine tannins and a bit of freshness. Very nice ! 

 

Terroir

Located on a 250 meters high plateau, Mas Cadenet’s vines found the perfect soil with this ground covered with gravels, a very typical phenomenon in Provence. This dry soil gives extremely low yields, an unavoidable condition if you want to get concentrated and structured wines like Negrel.

lecepage Grape variety

Grenache is the most used variety in Provence to produce red wines. And indeed, it is absolutely perfect for this terroir and its weather ! This variety, which is also the main one in Chateauneuf-du-Pape, a similar terroir, like rocky grounds and dry weathers and can face violent winds, which is important on hills next to the sea.

lemillesime Vintage

It’s no secret : 2010 was a great vintage everywhere in France, Provence included. Summer was sunny and dry, and grapes ripened quickly with no rot. The wines therefore attained a high level of ripeness and concentration luckily balanced by freshness that was brought by Mistral that blew strongly all summer long. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

Since 1813, 7 generations of Negrel have been improving the 45 hectares of Mas Cadenet next to Aix en Provence. The show goes on nowadays with Mathieu, who pursues the family ambition to become a model in the region. Behind, there is a long story of cultivating vines: indeed, an amphora from the Roman period was found in the vines, suggesting that there was already winemaking there 2000 years ago.
