Mas Carlot, Costières de Nîmes Blanc, 75cl

Nathalie Blanc-Marès runs her imposing 75 hectares estate from the charming 17th and 19th century Provençal farmhouse (Mas) at the heart of her property near Bellegarde in the Costières de Nîmes. Just north of the Camargue, much of the terrain is covered by the ‘galets roulés’ stones that are so symbolic of certain terroirs of Châteauneuf du Pape. Nathalie took over the running of the estate in 1998, following on from her father Paul-Antoine Blanc, who had purchased the domaine in 1986 having relinquished his famous Le Pied de Cochon restaurant in Les Halles. This young, energetic and passionate woman set herself the objective of focusing on quality and authenticity, via rigorous work in the vineyard, the winemaking and the ageing of her wines, in order to allow the various terroirs of the domaine to fully express themselves through the different wines in her portfolio.

Traditional vinification with direct pneumatic pressing and cold settling. Alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks under controlled temperatures and prevention of malolactic fermentation, in order to help retain edge and acidity. Aged on lees prior to bottling.
Grape varieties: Marsanne, Rousanne, Viognier
