Comax Bucolix Rouge Casot des Mailloles 2019, NEW VINTAGE, biodynamic wine, medium bodied red, creative wine making, nature first, surprising and delicious. The new Cuvee from Jordi Perez to replace the delicious Comax Ethylix which wasn't made in 2019. Bucolix relates to the pleasant aspects of the countryside in Jordi's region and Comax means going deep into a sleep or immersing oneself in the pleasant aspects of nature. These are ideas inherent in Jordi's personality. The wine is medium colour, with superb texture and freshness, bright red and black fruits, lovely scents of herbs and garrigue, crunchy fresh tannins. Generally, the wines from Le Casot need a little time in bottle to settle but this wine is made for earlier drinking and is superb already. Not much made so the vintage will go quickly.

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.
