Tokyo stars shine in the Mas Neuf sky

Restaurant L'Osier *** in Tokyo

L'Osier in Tokyo


Three Mas Neuf wines have just been chosen by the very prestigious (3* Michelin, 18/20 Gayot guide) Tokyo restaurant, l’Osier, following their presentation during January. The chef, Bruno Menard and the head sommelier Toshifumi NAKAMOTO selected Compostelle Blanc 2006, Mourvache 2005 et Armonio 2004.

Tokyo has the highest concentration of starred restaurants in the world, which is entirely justified by the rigorous choice of local produce of the highest quality, and the excellent workmanship of professionals there, whether cooking regional or European food.

We are even more gratified by the honour accorded us because, during our previous visit in 2006 we were lucky enough to have the pleasure of experiencing the panache of the chef who produced a menu devoted to the white truffle. To accompany this, Nakamoto San chose an absolutely stunning flight of wines in complete freedom, which included a very rare white Musigny, a Ch Rayas ‘90 and a ‘67 Yquem.

Our thanks to them, and long life to this jewel, which enjoys the sponsorship of the Shiseido group, its owners.

Mas Neuf at the French Blind Tasting Championship

Mas Neuf Tradition

La Revue du Vin de France




Mas Neuf Tradition rouge
   

The third contest of French Blind tasting championship was held within the famous old cellars of Vignerons de Vouvray recently, and Philippe de Cantenac, one of the talented journalists of Revue des Vins de France, was the master of ceremony of this equally serious and fun gathering.

He honoured us by choosing Mas Neuf Tradition Red 2005 to be included in this blind tasting, usually comprising around 10 wines, each team of 2 having to guess grape variety, region, vintage, producer and cuvee if possible !

When analysing the results, we find a very interesting mix of answers, which to my opinion give a good insight on the style of our wine in 2005 :

More than 13 teams located it... in the Loire vallley, with answers such as Joguet, Amirault, Baudry or Jacky Blot. Even if the location of the tasting event could have influenced the teams, it is not the first time that I encounter similarities of texture between ripe cabernet francs and syrah/mourvedre blends as well as very similar spicy aromas.

A good number of contestants situated the wine in Northern Rhône Valley, with prestigious names such as Combier, Graillot or Le Colombier, with also several answers in Saint Joseph. The 2005 syrah has really shown its very surprising fresh texture on that vintage.

Last, but not least, several answers nearer to home, Cairanne of Marcel Richaud, but also several Languedoc and also Lirac, but not once Costières de Nîmes.

We wish to thank Philippe de Cantenac for bringing in one of our wines and to allow us to discover the results of tasting. A full review will be issued in June Revue des Vins de France.

Dinner on the 24th October 2003 in Chateau de Salles

Author : Patrick Chazallet (on www.chazallet.com)

Patrick Chazallet

Chef : Eric Sapet from Mas des Herbes Blanches in Joucas (84)
Winemaker : Château Mas Neuf, Château Mas Neuf, Costières de Nîmes
Theme : «Under the sun of Provence»

2 appetizers :

Smoked salmon, Pumpkin, lime & lemon, raifort:
Very nice flavour balance between the raifort & smoked salmon.

potimarron cream, with sauteed cubes of home made spiced cake.

Vegetables "farcis" (stuffed), a pan fried big prawn with a touch of liquorice
Costières de Nîmes Compostelle blanc 2001 (grenache blanc-roussanne)

In the plate:
a small potatoe stuffed with wild mushroom (cepe) and walnut ;
Tomato stuffed with courgettes & mint;
A "panais" stuffed with aubergine and sage ;
A white mushroom stuffed with red cabbage and reinette apple;

The wine, is on a very pure profile, neither too acidic nor heavy. Of all flavour profiles, the best remains the stuffed potatoe which reveals the nutty flavour profile of the wine.

Rouget stuffed with tiny Provence vegetable cubes with pesto & parmeggiano sauce, oursin sauce in the plate.

Vin de Pays d’Oc blanc 2001 (chardonnay-viognier)
This very exuberant wine fits very well with the iodic feeling of the oursin sauce.

Wild pigeon "en salmis", stuffed leg, and a charlotte of salsifis with caramelized "forgotten" vegetables.

Costières de Nîmes Compostelle rouge 2001

The pigeon is grilled, the leg is stuffed with foie gras.
The wine is quite open on the nose, and there is an overall good fit with the dish although the sauce may seem a bit toopowerful compared to the wine.

On a blackcurrant macaron, a pear rosace poached in a red spiced wine, grittine ice cream, and a biscuit with Sarawak pepper.

Vin de Pays d’Oc rouge Syrah 2001

This is the best surprise of the evening ,as this powerful & fresh Syrah goes very well with this desert, very light in sugar, where the pepper plays a central role.
