Le Rose du Zaza Casot des Mailloles, Biodynamic wine, sensational garage wine.  Literally a handful of bottles are produced down in Banyuls overlooking the sea. This is a vibrant rose made from Syrah with a splash of Marsanne.  Le Rose du Zaza is oozing fresh, vibrant red fruits, wild scents of local garrigue and wild strawberry.  It has crisp uplifting acidity, you can truly taste the south of France in this wine.  There’s no pretence with this, it’s unfiltered, unsulphured and a bit wild.  It is truly authentic and utterly delicious! The current vintage is gorgeously young and vibrant.  Serve it chilled with olives and fresh anchovies, a taste of sunshine!

Le Casot des Mailloles is a 5 hectare estate nestled on steep terraces overlooking the town of Banyuls, in the Roussillon.

It is named after the traditional stone shelters that dot the vineyards in the region.  It was made famous by Biodynamic pioneers Alain Castex and Ghislaine Magnier who ran the estate until 2015.  The terrain here is steep so all the work is done manually.  The old vines of Grenache have buried their roots deep into the unique dark schist which is found in this area.

At Le Casot des Mailloles, they are strictly organic and biodynamic in the vines.  They use natural fermentation and never filter or fine the wines. Sulphites are also avoided entirely. 

After Alain Castex's retirement in 2015, production was passed on to Jordi Perez, a young winemaker very much in Alain's mould. He has continued the work and makes 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 these mystical vineyards but is also putting his own stamp on the wines. They have always carried great emotion and energy.  Jordi is aiming to bring also an element of precision and elegance which will raise the wines into the realms of the super fine.

Now after nearly 8 years at the helm, Jordi has made his mark.  The wines of Le Casot are absolutely stunning.  They have a vibrancy and energy that few other wineries in France and the world can match.  He has added some skin contact to some of the white wines and the older vintages, some which which predate Jordi continue to age majestically.  Natural wine for fine natural wine lovers, put a few cases away for 10 years.  You will be amazed how good they become.
