90 Pts David Schildknecht - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The Mas Conscience 2007 Le Cas - 100% Carignan from quartzite-rich cobbles, raised in concrete vats - should come as a revelation to any who doubt the potential of a grape too often subjected to disrespect (hence the play on the words for 'bad conscience' to which the name of this cuvee alludes.) A profusion of ripe blue- and blackberries pointing to the inherent beauty of truly ripe Carignan is accented with ginger spice and pungent herbs."
"Vidal - who tries to get by with as little sulfur at bottling as possible - says he nonetheless aims to put this cuvee into bottle slightly reduced, and in that he succeeded, so this 2007 needs time in the air (or at least, did late last year) to express itself. For now, this is neither texturally richer than the 2006, nor as elegant, but it probably will be with time. Dark suggestions of toasted nuts and peat lend an aura of mystery, while the combination of ginger, tart berry skin, and saline minerality in the finish is enormously invigorating. My guess (absent an extended track record) is that this should merit 5-7 years' cellaring."
"Begun in 2003, the roughly 30 acre, bio-dynamically-farmed estate of Laurent and Genevieve Vidal benefits from some of the sweetest spots in the Terraces du Larzac, featuring both cobbles and chalk shards in St.-Jean-de-Fos, Aniane and Puechabon. The facilities here appear to have been designed with immense forethought...other than to the sparing of expenses!" 90 Points - David Schildknecht - Wine Advocate
"Genevieve and Laurent Vidal, the owners of Mas Conscience, have come home, after a long time working in Pic St Loup, to Laurent's native village, St. Jean de Fos, located between Aniane and Montpeyroux. This young couple are passionate winemakers who work the vines using biodynamic practices, not using any chemicals, and are focused on growing the best grapes possible from this great terroir. After the first vintage in 2003, Genevieve and Laurent have shown the potential of the vineyard and their talent as winemakers." -Importer
