Mas Carlot Blanc, Cuvée Tradition, Costières de Nîmes 2018
Mas Carlot Blanc, of marsanne, rousanne and viognier, is a delicious summer white alternative to chardonnay or sauvignon blanc and just as good as the red.
Costières de Nîmes, south west of Châteauneuf and to the north of the Camargue, makes some of the loveliest and best value wines in France. Mas Carlot, in the opinions of Hugh Johnson and Robert Parker, is one of, if not the very best of the appellation and its vintages regularly get 2 or 3 stars in the Guide Hachette des Vins.
In the 18th century, the estate belonged to Admiral Grasset, and is now owned by Nathalie Blanc-Mares, a distinguished oenologist and with her husband Cyril, both consummate vignerons.
Fresh and lively with ripe tropical fruits, good minerality and hints of spice. Lovely long refreshing finish. A very classy wine at this price a great aperitif and match with fish.
"The 2017 Mas Carlot Blanc is right up my street. A blend of Roussanne, Marsanne and Viognier from the heart of Van Gogh country in the Costières de Nîmes, its dry but creamy, with hints of peach, honeysuckle and apricots. Natalie Blanc-Marès is widely regarded as one of the finest winemakers in the region and this is a steal." - Jonathan Ray, The Spectator Magazine (previous vintage).
