A charming blend of Marsanne, Rousanne and Viognier from the western edge of the River Rhône. We tasted it along with a very good white Châteauneuf-du-Pape, inevitably costing much more, and it held its own. A perfect respite from the ubiquity of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. Fantastic value - Robert Parker agrees with us - one of our best selling wines.

Our Tasting Notes

Fresh and lively with ripe tropical fruits and pear, good minerality and hints of spice. Lovely long refreshing finish. A very classy wine at this price.

About

Mas Carlot is situated in the south of the Rhône Valley, extending across 76 hectares of pebbly land southeast 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 neigbouring and equally reputable property, Mas Bressades.
