Traditional winemaking, temperature controlled fermentation.
Jeb Dunnuck – “Slightly lighter on its feet, with more red fruits, cassis, garrigue, spice, and subtle minerality, the 2016 Vacqueyras Chateau Mazane stays incredibly light and graceful on the palate and has incredible class. Nuanced, elegant and lightly textured, yet brilliantly concentrated and full-bodied, it’s another undeniably delicious, seriously good wine from this estate. The blend is 60% Syrah, 30% Syrah and the rest Mourvèdre and it has a decade of terrific drinking ahead of it.” (94 Pts)
Wine Enthusiast – “There’s a welcome vitality and mineral edge to this blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre. It’s full bodied and richly concentrated in black-plum and cherry flavors. Notes of baked thyme and rosemary as well as fine, firm tannins linger on a long finish. Enjoy now–2026.” (91 Pts)
