Of the 145 hectares of the estate, only 16 are planted with vineyards. These are always relatively cool thanks to our dominant position. This allows us to produce wines that are different, elegant and intense through an organic grape-growing approach.
From the Essentielle to the Exception ranges, including our ‘addictive’ vintages, our wines are made with passion and rigour by Yannick Burles and Yves Cuilleron.
Our whites are made with Chardonnay et Viognier grapes. The rosés are vinified using a blend of Grenache and Syrah. The reds are produced from Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Marselan, either alone or blended.
« The first time I discovered the Domaine des Masques, I was bewitched by its fabulous location, the wonderful view and the extraordinary terroir.
Being convinced by the terroir of clay and limestone, together with its exposure, altitude and the Syrah grape variety, I was very pleased to join this passionate and motivated winemaking team.
My experience as a winemaker will help us to bring the best out of the terroir to make authentic wines that are worthy of the place. »
Our olive oil is made from three varieties of olive trees: Aglandau, Salonenque and Bouteillan.
Strict specifications allow our estate to produce A.O.P. (“Appellation d’Origine Protégée”, i.e. Protected Designation of Origin) certified “Olive Oil of Aix-en-Provence”.
The trees are tended organically. We do not use any herbicides or insecticides.
The plantation density is 300 trees per hectare…
