Join us for a unique tasting afternoon where old and current vintages from the magical CASOT DE MAILLOLES will be open for tasting.
Le Casot De Mailloles is one of the smallest vineyards in Banyuls, and was made famous by Alain Castex and Ghislaine Magnier, who first bought the four hectare plot in the 1990s, producing the wine in an old Citroen garage. The honour has now been passed on by them to Jordi Perez, with 2015 being the first vintage he produced himself.
The terrain here, between the Mediterranean and the Pyrenees, is steep, with walled terraces. This means a lot of the work needs to be done manually, which can be time consuming, but avoids the sometimes destructive force of farming machinery. The old black schist stone walls are under constant repair, as they are vital to the functioning of the vineyard, preventing the soils from being washed away by rain. The old vines grow in these schist soils, strictly in compliance with organic principles, meaning minimal intervention that might harm the vine.
Casot de Mailloles wines are exceptional and unique with beautiful expressions and complexity. These wines have so much to tell...
