Details

Le Rose du Zaza Casot des Mailloles, Biodynamic wine, sensational garage wine. This is the new Rose from Le Casot de Mailloles. Literally a handful of bottles are produced and the wine sells out very quickly. This is a vibrant rose made from Syrah, . Oozing fresh, vibrant red fruits, scents of local garrigue and crisp uplifting acidity, you can truly taste the south of France in this wine. There's no pretense with this, it's unfiltered, unsulphured and a bit wild, but truly authentic!

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, who ran the winery for a long time, has now moved on, but the wines are carrying on in safe hands! 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.
