About Our Wines

The WinesAll the wines at Mas de la Lionne are hand-crafted, limited production wines; from the Cotes du Rhone red and rose to the award-winning wines: the ‘Old Vines’ Ombre du Chateau and our grandest cuvee, Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Our commitment is to allow the terroir to show through to the finished wine by not interfering during the winemaking process. Only pre-used (2 years) oak barrels are employed for ageing, when the wine warrants it, to ensure that the fruit comes forward – not the wood. This minimalist approach yields wines that are true to their source.

To buy our wines you can order online or visit Mas de la Lionne in person.

Cotes du Rhone Rose

2013 rosé


As is typical with rose wines from the Cotes du Rhone, this wine is salmon pink in color. Its freshness and liveliness makes it a great aperitif wine, or perfect for a summer ‘al fresco’ lunch. But it is also a wonderful accompaniment to light dinners of pizza or pasta. Annual Prod. 1000 btls

100% Grenache

Made from a selection of old-vine fruit, this oak barrel-aged cuvee has the deep garnet color associated with mature vines. Aromas of dark red fruits combine with a hint of chocolate.

Chateauneuf-du-Pape Rouge

red chateauneuf 2012


A typically rustic Chateauneuf-du-Pape. The nose brings aromas of dark fruit and spice, while hints of jammy red fruits and chocolate arrive in the mouth. This is the wine for those hearty meats, as well as for finishing the meal with cheese and fruit. Annual Prod. 1000 btls

2012 Chateauneuf-du-Pape

Alc. 15.0 %
Ph 3.67

2012 “Deep Garnet. Mature nose marrying fruit notes of cassis and blackberry with toast, roasted coffee and spice. Full driven attack leading into a powerful, full palate with tight-knit tannins. Magnificent aromatic spectrum. Balance and elegance. 90/00.” Gilbert & Gaillard

2012 “Voluptuous, sweetly fruited effort that has lots to love. Giving up ample garrigue, sweet black cherries and hints of crushed flowers, this medium to full-bodied shows the hallmark supple, rounded and soft texture of the vintage. Should drink nicely through 2020. 89 pts.” Robert Parker

2013 Chateauneuf-du-Pape

Alc. 15.0 %
Ph 3.58

2013: This grand cuvee, typical of the 2013 vintage, is more elegant and softer than its 2012 predecessor. But it contains all of the aromas and flavors of dark red fruits and spice.
