Mas Carlot Rosé by Mas Carlot 2019 is the Wine Enthusiast Editor’s Choice French Rosé. A stunning award receiving 91 Points!
The allure of Rhône knows no bounds: There is a marked energy and vivid sense of identity to its bottlings of rosé that provides the most superbly refreshing summer experience. At WineOnline headquarters in Toronto, we think that the party has not begun until you have some fresh Rosé in hand.
This wine is what you want in that glass. A Rosé from the spiritual home of Rosé, and from a historic producer to boot!
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 by Natalie Blanc-Mares and her husband, 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.
What the Critics Say:
“This seductive, dark-pink rosé offers potent blackberry and black cherry perfume. A blend of Grenache (50%), Syrah (40%) and Mourvèdre (10%), it’s full bodied and robust with deeply concentrated raspberry and watermelon flavours. Buoyantly fruit forward but dry and firmly structured, it finishes on elegant tea tannins. Enjoy now–2022.” 91 points – Wine Enthusiast Editors’ Choice, Jan 2019 (2018 Vintage)
