About the Winery
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 Cyril Mares of the neighbouring and equally reputable property, Mas Bressades.
The appellation of Costières de Nîmes used to be considered part of eastern Languedoc but the climate, soil, topography and wine are far closer to those just over the river in the Southern Côtes du Rhône. It is now a region very much on the up and is widely recognized as a great source of excellent value wine.

Made from marsanne and roussanne with just a touch of viognier from just outside of Nîmes. Really kind of crazy aromatic profile made for all the juke joints, bistrot and pizzerie wherever French village whites are needed. Rich palate and very southern, generous warmth and no peppery shakes. Rich, full and languid. Drink 2019-2021. Tasted November 2019.
