A Wine That
makes you stop what you're doing and think, "oooof." From the south of France, but somehow managing to taste like the Northern Rhône, this pays homage to the Jordi (the winemaker)'s talent for scouting vineyards. Think wild thyme, smokiness, bacon, and bramble. Yum.

Where and How?
This is from Jordi's new plot in the mountains; a blend of Syrah and some Marsanne (Northern Rhône style). The Marsanne is pressed directly and put together with the Syrah (half of which is whole bunch, half destemmed), and macerated for just five days, after which it’s aged in stainless steel. Bottled unfined and unfiltered, without sulphites.
The Winemaker: Le Casot des Mailloles
It takes something special for a legendary winemaker to decide you’re 'The One' to take on their vineyards when they retire.
Alain Castez & Ghislaine Magnier could sense that young Jordi Perez had that something special, and entrusted their beloved Le Casot des Mailloles to him.
Legends don't continue without those who perpetuate the legacy
Under his watch and hard graft, the domaine has gone from strength to strength, and he has introduced a new vineyard to the stable in (almost) unchartered territories.
