Mas Carlot Générations Rosé Costières de Nîmes 2020
Two real taste enthusiasts, winemaker Julien Bonneau and Chef Alexandre Lavigne were eager to share their own range of wines and created Cuvée Emma made from vineyards located on the hillsides of St Bonnet sur Gironde in the south of the Charente Maritime, a sub-region near the Ocean, on the outskirts of Bordeaux. Emma embodies the purity of a natural wine, Alexandre Lavigne and Julien Bonneau attach a great importance on sustainable vine cultivation were the balance of the plant and grape maturity are essential. Winemaking is naturally done without the use of sulphites. Made from Merlot grapes; on the nose it has notes of black fruits and candied fruit. On the palate, it is a fruit-forwarded and full-bodied wine, with a beautiful length. It pairs perfectly with red meats and umami flavours, such as cacio e pepe or carbonara pastas.

Unlike many winemakers, Frédéric Brouca is largely self-taught and took no formal courses on viticulture or winemaking. His concept of growing grapes and winemaking focuses on reducing human intervention in the processes, and making it as natural as possible. The Champs Pentus Blanc is a Roussanne dominant blend with Grenache Blanc, grown organically on hillside vineyards in the outskirts of the Faugères appellation. After being hand-harvested, the grapes are destemmed and gently pressed. A long and slow fermentation in stainless steel tanks and neutral oak barrels (only 20% of the juice!), enhances the aromas and the flavour. Medium gold in color, on the nose the Champs Pentus Blanc is highly floral, with aromas of candied quince and beeswax. On the palate, it is light to medium bodied, but with lush texture and a honeyed aftertaste. It has a lovely fresh bitterness, apricot skin-like acidity and a playful and airy finish. This Roussanne pairs nicely with flavoured dishes: thai roast chicken thighs or spicy squash and basil pasta.Location: FranceVariety: Grenache BlancVolume: 750mlABV: 14.%
