曼斯纳夫堡起源于18 世纪， 由于Saint Gilles 和Compostella 之间的道路距离中世纪废墟的南部只有100 米之遥，因此这片领地的所有者建起了驿站让过往人员和坐骑能够歇息和过夜。
由于这些土地有非常好的条件，因此几个实际以来葡萄树在驿站周围大量生长，后来一位果农在一处称为Clos Saint Sebastien 的葡萄圆劳作时发现了罗马的首批定居者所使用的罗马硬币，其中硬币的名称使用的是他们前四个字母：VOLC。
如今，我们可以在法国尼母考古博物馆见到这些硬币。同时硬币也标志见证了MAS NEUF 酒庄的悠久辉煌的历史。
Discover Mas Neuf-The history of Mas Neuf
The history of Mas Neuf is closely linked to its location along very ancient traffic routes which passed close to its vineyards.
From the 18th century, the road from Saint Gilles to Compostella, runs 100 metres to the south of a Medieval ruin and naturally led to the owner of the area to establish a post house to shelter men and their mounts for some hours or for the night.
These lands enjoy an excellent aspect and for some centuries, the vines have occupied a priviledged place around the noble building. It was during some work in the vineyard block known as the "Clos Saint Sébastien" that a farmer came across some Roman coins used by the first inhabitants of Nemausus, the VOLCEARECOMICS. This coin bears the four first letters of their name: VOLC.
Today we can admire these coins at the Nîmes archeological museum. It is also the symbol that today serves as a hallmark for all the exceptional blends from Mas Neuf.
The reputation of this post house and the quality of its hospitality became increasingly well known and the main part of the building was extended towards the end of the 18th century by the addition of a chapel which would be transformed into a cask cellar in the mid 19th century.
It was a frequent guest to this place, Lord François de Posquières, who together with other famous wine farmers, created the first regional wine association, gathering together what would become the beautiful gem of the artisanal wine farmers of the Costières de Nîmes. It was with great delight that he tasted the fruit of this terroir whilst professing that as an informed epicurian, it was necessary to maintain a measure of moderation.
One of the famous owners at the beginning of the century, Lord Meffre, would be responsible for the distinctive thrust of this vineyard. He installed spectacular casks in the ancient chapel. In selecting cultivars of quality, and having an inspired set-up from the point of view of agronomic techniques, he stamped the estate with this perfectionism which would never leave its building.
Since 2000, Luc Baudet and his team have chosen to increase the exceptional potential of this vineyard by working on all the key elements that make a great wine: first of all, the vineyard and then extreme care in the cellar.
Rhone Paradox - Gastronomic range
The Compostelle range personifies the evolution of our thoughts regarding the most complete expression of the terroir within the setting of the AOC Costière de Nîmes.
These blends are developed with grapes emanating from very strict block selection, sorted and harvested by hand. The blocks that have been pre-selected for these blends enjoy extreme care where disbudding, rebiochage, selective thinning of leaves are concerned.
The average age of the vines is more than 30 years, and the yield is between 25 and 30l/ha with a density of between 5 000 and 6 700 vines per hectare. The checking of ripeness is done by tasting, but also by checking phenolic ripeness and tannin quality.
After vinification in cement tanks, these wines are the subjects of very specific care during the maturation process. We have chosen to use barrels from a wine coming from Bordeaux estates which have indicated strict selectivity in the choice of their woods and coopers (Lafite-Rothschild, Smith-Haut-Lafite and Pape Clément for the red and Château d'Yquem for the white).
A true maturation is made to take place to reveal the richness of the juices without excessively embellishing them with wood.
Chosen by several sommeliers from gourmet restaurants, (see the list of awards) these wines will be capable of making your festive gatherings into highlights. These carefully nurtured wines show terroir potential to match the best Rhone appellations.
