About the Winery
The position of Chateau Mas Neuf, half way up the southern flank of the Costieres de Nimes is very special. The exposure to the sun is similar to that found in the Languedoc or Provence, but the proximity of lagoons and the Mediterranean Sea allows it to take advantage of warm sea breezes drifting up from the sea. This unexpected coolness is a real singularity and is called by its passionate owner, Luc Baudet, the Rhone paradox. It also has good terroir and old vines, factors which have all facilitated lightning progress in less than a decade. I wants Mas Neuf to be known for great Rhone wines not just great Costieres de Nimes wines, says Luc. Taste your way through Mas Neuf cuvees and you may feel that his grandiose wish could be granted.
