*****************************************************************

Cité dans les prédictions de Nostradamus, peint par Van Gogh, évoqué par Simone de Beauvoir, le Mas de la Dame produit vins et huile d'olive depuis quatre générations.

Les arrières petites filles du fondateur, gèrent aujourd'hui ce domaine qui s'étend sur trois cents hectares dont 57 hectares de vignes et 28 hectares d’oliviers.

Situé au pied du mythique village des Baux de Provence, sur le versant sud des Alpilles, à l'abri de la barrière montagneuse, les vins bénéficient d’un terroir unique et d’un microclimat bien spécifique.

Sur un sol très drainant, formé d'éboulis caillouteux d’origine argilo-calcaire, issus de la désagrégation du rocher, spécifique à cette partie des Alpilles, les vignes poussent et se mêlent à la garrigue environnante dans un équilibre harmonieux.

Le « mistral » persistant favorise un bon état sanitaire et l'échange des arômes.

*****************************************************************

Mentioned in the predictions of Nostradamus, painted by Van Gogh, and referred to by Simone de Beauvoir ( famed 20th century French author-philosopher) Mas de la Dame has been producing wines and olive oil now for four generations.

The property in its current form was established by Auguste Faye, whose great-grand daughters now manage the estate, which covers 740 acres of which 140 acres planted with vineyards and 70 acres planted to olive groves.

Laying at the feet of the legendary village of Les Baux de Provence on the southern flanks of the sheltering Alpilles mountain ridge, the vines benefit from a unique terroir and a quite specific microclimate.

Our vineyards in this part of the Alpilles grow on a very well drained soil formed from eroded argilo-calcareous soil, mingling a harmonious balance with the surrounding garrigue, a blend of wild aromatic Provencal herbs.

The persistent mistral promotes healthy vines and an exchange of aromas.

To help preserve this exceptional environment, we practice organic agriculture.

The soil is worked mechanically while herbicides and pesticides are forbidden

  • We went to this cellar hoping for a visit, comments, smiles and friendliness, but we arrived in a cold place, two people at the office behind their screens, no welcome and a very inexperienced girl giving no explanation, I asked for a tasting, so this was shipped and suddenly the wine lost its flavor. We'll look elsewhere!

  • It is welcomed with lovable ways and introduced with courtesy in a variety of wine products (I skipped the tasting of the oils) not very structured, but quality based on native vines. I preferred whites and roses based on grenache blanc, rolle (vermentino), clairette and roussanne. How far away Paris is... thank fully!
