Details

Mas Nicot Rouge, Biodynamic, Grenache, Syrah, authentic flavour of the south yet at the same time, elegant and pure. This is one of the best little natural wines in France. A blend of Grenache and Syrah, it explodes with fresh crunchy fruit, notes of undergrowth, herbs, leather and wild scrub. The texture is perfect for Sunday roast or even a light salad with charcuterie, really versatile and really friendly. We love it to death and think it is a fantastic price.




The story of Mas des Agrunelles is an incredible one. Frédéric Porro was an aspiring Motor cross rider until an accident left him in a wheelchair. His disability led him to a new passion - wine - after his sister asked him to put together the wine list for he restaurant. From that moment on, he became devoted to the grape. Mas des Agrunelles came about from his collaboration with Stéphanie Ponson – owner of Mas Nicot – in 2005 near Murles in Languedoc. They usually say about it: 'we first met thanks to wine and now wine unites us'. The name of the estate comes from the fact that there are a lot of wild sloe trees around the vineyards and sloe is 'Agrunelles' in old occitan. The 18 hectares of vineyards are on a dozen of plots and the vines are planted on clay and limestone soils. Work is biodynamic in the vineyards with traditional methods of ploughing with horses and no chemicals at all.

    A bit strong but works well with meat. I'd recommend opening the bottle one or two hours before drinking.

    A bargain - soft and round in the mouth, plenty of fruit and a hint of that deli-counter complexity on the finish. Hard to describe, but a taste that takes me to the smells of good charcuterie!
