Our Tasting Notes

Each glass gives a dark, brooding and intense nose which is highly expressive rich and ripe fruit-driven. The wine is chewy, full of rich, ripe concentrated sun dried berry fruits, hints of sweetness, honey and a great finish. This is a very well made wine and absolutely delicious. It will be great anywhere from a dinner party to a beach BBQ.

About

Mas Carlot is situated in the south of the Rhône Valley, extending across 76 hectares of pebbly land south-east of Nîmes. Originally a 17th century farm, this beautiful estate was resurrected in the 1960's by the Blanc family. It is currently run by Natalie Blanc-Mares and her husband, Cyril Mares of the neighbouring and equally reputable property, Mas Bressades.

“Exactly what the doctor ordered. A sumptuously decadent red, made from Grenache and Syrah, that has backbone too. Also astonishing intensity – all warming red berried and sunshine. Last year my brother made Tom Kerridge’s honey-glazed bacon joint as part of our Christmas dinner – it would be great with that, as as with festive fruity stuffing or venison stew.” - Victoria Moore, The Telegraph


“Costières de Nîmes is a sub-region in the southern Rhône that isn’t very well-known, meaning prices are often low - and this rewarding red from a renowned producer is a real bargain. Made from Grenache and syrah with a spiced blackberry theme, it’s a winner – so stock up now before the barbecue season.” - Matthew Jukes, Daily Mail
