Details

Blanc du Casot Le Casot de Mailloles 2016, biodynamic wine, unfiltered, un-fined, un-sulphured, untouched, just pure garrigue, savoury earthy purity, layered fruit and texture, simply delicious. These little garage wines really are such a delight for the palate that love to taste nature in the wine. The Blanc de Casot, a wine of immense complexity as well as simple pleasure is a blend of Grenache Blanc and Gris and Muscat d'Alexandrie. The wines of Le Casot are produced in tiny quantity, difficult to come by and age beautifully, call it the Grand Cru of the Languedoc in its purely natural form, superb white wine.


Le Casot des Mailloles is a 5 hectare estate nestled on the steep walled terraces overlooking the town of Banyuls, in the Roussillon. It is named after the traditional stone shelters that dot the vineyards in the region and was made famous by Alain Castex and Ghislaine Magnier who ran the estate until 2015. The terrain here is steep, all the work is done manually, and the old vines grow have buried their roots deep into the unique dark schist which is found in this area. They are strictly organic and biodynamic in the vines, use natural fermentation and never filter or fine the wines. Sulphites are avoided entirely. After Alain's retirement in 2015, production has been passed on to Jordi Perez, a young winemaker very much in Alain's mould. His first vintage was 2015 and he continues to make wine using the same methods as Alain and Ghislaine. Jordi is young and a very talented wine maker, he is devoted to the Casot style and the integrity of this mystical vineyard but is also putting his own stamp on the wines. They have always carried great emotion and energy. Jordi is aiming to bring to them also an element of precision and elegance which will raise the wines into the realms of the super fine. Already showing very well, the 2016s from Jordie are superb and the new 2018s have a vibrancy that few other wineries in France and the world can match.
