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. The word 'Casot' refers to the traditional stone shelters that dot the vineyards of the exposed Banuyls region, an area where wine makers sought refuge from the strong winds of the Tramontane during bad weather. Alain Castex still runs the winery he set up around 20 years ago (although he is set to retire very soon, oh no!). This is pure 'garage wine', artisan par excellence, the wine making is even done in a former Citroen garage that Alain and his partner Ghislaine Magnier found 15 days before their very first harvest! Old vines with low yields are planted on schists soils and the wines are usually aged in old oak barrels, are not fined nor filtered and no sulphites are added at any stage of production. With barely 5,000 bottles produced each year, Le Casot des Mailloles is one of the smallest estates of the Banyuls appellation and their elixirs of life are highly sought after.
