The Luberon viticultural area is situated between the Ventoux and Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence appellations, to the north and south respectively. The Luberon vineyards are located within 60km (37 miles) of the Mediterranean coast, and enjoy the benefits of the gentle, south-facing slopes that run from the Mont Ventoux foothills to the sea. Syrah and Grenache dominate plantings and must both be present in the reds. Mourvèdre is also considered a primary red grape. Whites are made from Grenache Blanc, Clairette, Bourboulenc, Ugni Blanc, Vermentino and occasional inclusions of Marsanne, Roussanne and Viognier. Stipulations for white wine production here state that Ugni Blanc must not make up more than 50 percent of the wine and Viognier no more than 10 percent (the latter is also limited to 10 percent in rosé production). The climate is Mediterranean with typically long, warm days, characteristic of the wider region. The Luberon has cooler nights than most Rhône wine-producing areas, however, and this higher diurnal temperature variation helps to produce some of the crisper, more interesting white wines of the southern Rhône.

Acclaimed director Ridley Scott and his family arrived at the Domaine in 1992. Situated in the Luberon near to the citadel in Oppède-le-Vieux and close to the equally enchanting villages of Lacoste, Ménerbes and Bonnieux. In 2009, encouraged by the quality of the soils and the climates of vineyards, they decided to vinify and bottle their first cuvées, with the help of a local cooperative. In the years that followed the project, a desire grew to create true quality wines. They built a modern and superbly equipped cellar to vinify and mature the various cuvées in AOP LUBERON. The labels are all designed and drawn by Ridley Scott himself and message of "Health, Happiness and Elegance of Provence" and take inspiration from one of the very first owners of the domaine, . One of the most important environmental commitments concerns the health of the region's bee population. This is why the Mas, of about thirty hectares, is certified "Bee Friendly" and HVE.

Tasting note: Bright clean, pink candied nose with notes of white peach, strawberry and gentle cherry. Yellow and pink citrus notes continue on the palate leading to rock candy and grapefruit. The palate is silky and smooth with brilliant, but soft acidity. Long and fresh with soft red fruits on the finish.
Winemaking Detail: In accordance with their Bee Friendly commitment, they do not use any herbicides, the soils are grassed or flowered, to encourage pollination. All the treatments used on the vines comply with the Bee Friendly standard and thus preserve the fauna, flora and the aquatic environment. During the harvest, a plot selection is made according to the age of the vines, the maturity of the grapes and the concentration. The harvest is hand-picked and machine-harvested, then sorted and destemmed. The grapes are then cold soaked before pressing to preserve their freshness and aromatic characters. The juice is then cooled to very low temperatures (c. 1 °C), then stirred with stabulation for 10 to 15 days until the optimum quality is reached. Fermentation takes place for 10 to 15 days, between 15 and 20 ° C. The wines are then racked and filtered before bottling.
