Something a little special. Le Casot des Mailloles from when Alain Castex was still at the helm (now making a few wines out of his garage as Les vins du Cabanon).
El Niño is Grenache heavy, deep black fruits - blackberries shine and the unique garigue filled terroir comes through in way of herbs and spice - a little liquorice…
This is Christmas cheese board territory.
These plots are notoriously hard to tend to due to the natural terrain being so steep!
Grenache, Carignan, Mourvèdre
