Mas Carlot Rouge, Générations, Costières de Nîmes 2018
Costières de Nîmes, in the lovely country around Nîmes and Arles in the Southern Rhône, make some of the very best value wines in the whole of France. And Mas Carlot, long a favourite of Robert Parker, the Guide Hachette and of ours, is the best of this interesting appellation. With its lovely 18th century mas or bastide built by Admiral Grasset, Mas Carlots two wines, a white roussanne, marsanne, viognier and a red grenache, syrah are made by the hugely talented Nathalie Blanc-Mares. I never want to live without them.

Big fan of this red, which is not too heavy
Go to everyday wine. A fine round mouthful of flavour, with a little sunlit sweetness to finish. Category Yum.
