"While the nose is smoky and restrained, this plummy, pristinely fruity red offers loads of sun-kissed black cherry and plum flavors edged by a stony, mineral undertone. A blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre, it's an immediately approachable but elegant wine. The finish lingers on fine, feathery tannins. - ANNA LEE C. IIJIMA"

jeb dunnuck logo 250"Similarly colored, the 2018 Vacqueyras Château Mazane offers a more focused, firm, structured style. While I normally prefer the Grande Garrigue cuvée, this might be a step up in 2018, and it certainly shows more structure and length. A blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and 10% Mourvèdre, brought up in tanks and barrels, it’s going to be one of the gems in 2018."

jeb dunnuck logo 250"Mostly Grenache (there’s 30% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre), the 2017 Vacqueyras Château Mazane offers classic ripe cherry and darker berry fruits as well as plenty of garrigue, pepper, violets, and earthy aromas and flavors. It stays straight and focused on the palate, with plenty of concentration and structure, and is going to keep for 8-10 years."

2016 Chateau Mazane Vacqueyras Rouge - 94 PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"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."

2018 Chateau Mazane Vacqueyras Rouge - 92 PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"Based on 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and the rest Mourvèdre, the 2018 Vacqueyras Chateau Mazane shows a slightly more modern vibe (it’s aged in tank and barrel) in its rocking red and blue fruits, graphite, smoked earth, and peppery garrigue aromas and flavors. With medium to full-bodied richness, a round, supple mouthfeel, and plenty of underlying structure, it’s a seriously good 2018 Vacqueyras that will have 8-10 years of ultimate longevity."

2015 Chateau Mazane Vacqueyras Rouge - 91 PTS - WE

wine enthusiast 91 pts"Sun-baked plum and berry aromas are accented by savory hints of charcuterie and dried herbs here. Fleshy black and red fruit flavors are concentrated and plush but elegantly restrained, balanced by fresh acidity. It's a voluptuous but well-integrated wine, marked by raspy, firm tannins that should melt over the next 3–5 years. - Anna Lee C. Iijima"
