Made famous by the hard work of Alain Castex and his wife, it was now time for them to move on and they found in Jordi Perez the same spirit that had animated them all these years. Jordi took over gradually, working alongside them, and the wines made in 2015 are the last made by Alain and Jordi. Jordi now flies solo. Le Casot des Mailloles is a 5 hectare estate nestled on steep, walled terraces overhanging the town of Banyuls.
