Mas Carlot Rouge, Costières de Nîmes 2017
Costières de Nîmes, south west of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, can produce wonderful wines at a fraction of the price of its northern neighbour. The Mas Carlot vineyard was founded by the King of Naples’ French Admiral Grasset in the 18th century. Robert Parker writes ‘this excellent estate continues to turn out superb bargain priced wines that consumers should seek out for relief from increasingly higher priced wines.'
How does the wine taste?
Each glass gives a dark, brooding and intense nose which is highly expressive.The wine is chewy, full of rich, ripe concentrated sun-dried berry fruits, hints of sweetness, honey and a great finish.
What do the critics say?
“This rewarding red from a renowned producer is a real bargain… it’s a winner!”
