Château La Mascaronne | Provence
Chateau La Mascaronne is located in rolling hills just outside the Medieval village of Le Luc. It lies half way between the Provençal towns of Brignoles and Fréjus, with St Tropez to the south-east and Chateau Miraval close by. Recognising the great potential of La Mascaronne's renowned terroir, the domaine was purchased by Tom Boye in 1999, (at the time he also owned the nearby Château Miraval), and the renaissance of the domaine began.
Located on a hillside at the highest point of the estate, La Mascaronne’s sixty hectare vineyard is a single, continuous plot of land surrounded by oak and olive trees. It sits in a sumptuous ring-shaped site, mostly composed of clay-limestone soils. At an elevation of three hundred meters, it enjoys a unique microclimate:at night, it is constantly cooler than on the shore. Certified organic since 2016, the vineyard’s orientation brings natural ventilation that favours the healthy development of its grapes. The amount of sunshine and rain and average temperatures are never excessive, providing ideal conditions for the vine to thrive.
Convinced by the potential of La Mascaronne, Michel Reybier purchased the estate in 2020. He is also the owner of Cos d’Estournel, a Second Growth in Saint-Estèphe, Domaine Impérial Tokaj-Hétszölö, the Jeeper champagne house and La Réserve hotels in Paris, Geneva, Zurich and Ramatuelle. Under his guidance and stewardship this exquisite estate is certainly in safe hands.
