Natalie's Score: 89/100

Produced by Cyril Marès, prop.-vigneron in the Costières de Nîmes region where only 7% of wine made is white. This area is the southernmost appellation in the Rhône, and therefore summers are very hot, with more than 2,700 hours of sunshine every year, moderated only by cool breezes from the river delta called the Petite Camargue where the Rhône River meets the Mediterranean. Dry, crisp and clean and excellently priced! If you like pinot grigio, give this white a try. Some terrific floral notes on the finish. In the early twentieth-century, the Marès family started making wine in Algeria, but later moved to Bordeaux to start Château Puy Castéra and then on to the Rhone in the Costières de Nîmes region for this coveted winery. This wine is a zesty blend of Grenache Blanc and Roussanne grapes. Try is with fresh seafood.

Food pairings: steamed crab with lemon garlic butter sauce, seafood salad, mussel and clam soup.

Alana L rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Nathalie’s delighful review of this wine showcases the history and geography of this lovelyn wine by the Marès family. Another recommendation from our trusted SAQ advisor for our annual New Year’s eve event, this wine was suggested as an excellent pairing for our lobster and shrimp hors-d’œuvres and we could not agree more. Zesty with a first olfactory note of fruit (pear I found) and a lovely palate that my love of pinot grigio appreciated (varietals in this wine are Grenache blanc, Roussanne, Marsanne and Viognier) - a nice smokiness for a white on the finish. Loved!
Wineboy rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A beautiful white to serve with friends a surrounded by good conversation. Crisp, medium wieight, crafted to beautifully compliment foods not overpower them. Purity of tree fruit with great length and a kiss of lifted aromatics on the late palate.
Mas Des Bressades Cuvée Tradition 2017 is produced by Cyril Marès, prop.-vign. This is a bone-dry 50% Roussanne 30% Grenache 10% Marsanne and 10%
Viognier from the Costières De Nîmes, Rhône. Nice florals on this wine, zesty with light tropical fruit, honey and stonefruit flavours on the palate. The Marès family began making wine in Algeria during the early 20th century and would later acquire properties in Bordeaux (Château Puy Castéra) and in Costières de Nîmes, where they founded the renowned winery that produces this wine. This heat of this region is offset by cool breezes from the Petite Camargue. Pair with roast chicken. - Community Wine Reviews
