Details

Soula is produced from old vines of Grenache planted on steep terraced vineyards overlooking the Mediterranean in Banyuls. It is a wine which in youth hides its potential for profound depth and complexity behind exuberant fresh red fruits, spices and very high acidity. With age it becomes something much more, animal and dark fruit aromas develop and you smell the local garrigue and taste the salt of the sea. It is stunning red when 10 years of age but with only about 1000 bottles made, it rarely makes that far. We have a little 2013 and a few bottles of 2011 left.

Le Casot des Mailloles is a 5 hectare estate nestled on the steep walled terraces overlooking the town of Banyuls, named after the traditional stone shelters that dot the vineyards. Made famous by Alain Castex and Ghislaine Magnier who ran the estate from the 1990s until 2015, this is a proper 'garage' winery. The terrain here is steep, so a lot of the work is done manually, and the old vines grow on the unique dark schist found here. They are strictly organic, use natural fermentation and never filter or fined. Suphites are avoided entirely. Production has now been passed on to Jordi Perez, a young winemaker very much in Alain's mould. His first vintage was produced in 2015 and he continues to make wine in the traditions set up by Alain and Ghislaine. With such tiny production, the wines are highly sought after, and for good reason!
