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.

Mas Carlot is situated in the south of the Rhône Valley, extending across 76 hectares of pebbly land southeast of Nîmes. This persistently seductive rosé is a traditional blend of grenache (50 per cent), syrah (40) and mourvèdre (10%). Dry as a cacti, lavender and tarragon brushy desert with pink tonic cocktail botanicals and a citrus twist. Luxe and most delicieux. Drink 2021-2023. Tasted January 2021.

Delicately spicy and bright this southern Rhône valley rosé offers notes of dried thyme, nettle, pomegranate and ripe red raspberry. Wholly satisfying, clean and finely crafted. Exhibiting both balance and affability with memorable length. Tasted January 2021.
