The lovely and humble Catherine and constantly smiling Pascal Mazet established their domaine in 1981 with 2.5 hectares from her side of the family—enviable holdings in premier cru land on the Montagne de Reims communes Chigny-les-Roses and Ludes, and a grand cru parcel in Ambonnay. Even with such scant vineyard land, Pascal and his third son, Olivier, keep it interesting with six very different wines, soon to be only five. Most of the vineyards are gentle slopes facing southeast at 150m altitude with chalk bedrock alternating with calcareous sands and clay topsoil. They’re easy to spot: green jungle patches amid neighboring vineyards growing on desolate soil.Sight - Light and bright pink color - slightly cloudy (due to its method of production). Nose - Aromas of red fruits (strawberries, pomegranates, gooseberry) and floral notes of violet. Palate - Dry wine with a fizzy crunchy bubble. Expressive and fresh with a predominant flavor of red fruit and lovely citrus notes(grapefruit).
