Details

Ezo Le Casot de Mailloles, blend of Merlot and Syrah. Zero added sulphites, just natural and rare. As with all Le Casot's wine, they are highly sought after and made in very small quantities. Full of life, fruit and something a bit wild - these wines are not for everyone but they are real artisan wines that speak of their terroir.

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 winemaking 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.
