Tasting Notes

Domaine: Mas Carlot
Producer: Nathalie Blanc-Marès
Website: http://www.mascarlot.com
Variety: 60% Grenache 40% Syrah
Country: France
Region: Costières de Nîmes
Background
Constructed around the seventeenth century, this old Provençal Mas was brought back to life by the Blanc family, who purchased the estate in the Sixties. Located on the western edge of the Rhône River, in the village of Bellegarde, southeast of the city of Nîmes, the vineyards are in the heart of the appellation’s cailloux-based soil. In the old Provençal dialect, “Mas” means farm, and Nathalie Blanc-Marès is beautifully managing this 75 hectares farm with the aid of her husband Cyril Marès, owner of the neighboring property Mas des Bressades (yes, she married the boy-next-door). They are a great Provençal family - young and energetic with great vision and talent.
The vineyards were planted in the 1950’s and 1960’s to the current varietals. The vines are trained using a system called Cordon de Royat, which helps maintain lower fruit production. Mas Carlot limits yields to around 45hl/ha, which is one-third below what the appellation allows. Nathalie likes to wait during harvest - picking late to obtain the maximum maturity for each grape varietal. This Rosé is a blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah all of which have been bled from tank. This is a gorgeous Rosé, loaded with wonderfully intermingled flavors of strawberries and graced by hints of spring flowers and spice. It’s lush on the palate, with a long, harmonious finish.


Critical Praise

90 Wine Enthusiast.

Notes from Robert Parker…
Vibrantly clear and raspberry in color, the 2012 Mas Carlot Costieres-de-Nimes Cuvee Tradition Rose (50% Grenache, 40% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre) delivers loads of wild strawberry, cherry, flowers and hints of minerality in a medium-bodied, classically dry, yet textured and rich package. Not quite to the Tavel level of richness, this beautifully fresh, elegant rose represents and awesome value and will shine for 6-12 months.
This excellent estate in the Costieres de Nimes continues to turn out some superb bargain-priced wines that consumers should seek out for relief from increasingly higher prices as well as the weak dollar.
