This is Great……and Here’s Why!

91/100 La Revue du Vin de France

Organic

La Revue du Vin de France "A frank expression of verbena, aromatic plants and white heather. The palate is balanced; a cereal universe completes the aromatics, with fine bitterness on the finish and a nice hold in the mouth."

Winemakers note "Pale gold color with a beautiful shine. Lots of freshness on the palate and great liveliness. Floral and mineral notes."

This wine comes from an old 80-year-old white carignan vine located around the farmhouse, on a clay-limestone soil. This grape variety is a rare grape variety and we are lucky to have preserved a beautiful plot that every year delivers magnificent grapes regardless of the climatic hazards.

Mas Lavail’s Carignan is a beautifully rounded, full, southern white with spicy citrus, herb and apricot flavours and a dry, refreshing finish.

100% Carignan Blanc

Mas de Lavail is a family-owned estate in the heart of the Maury Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée, one of the oldest Appellations in the area of Roussillon, which was designated in 1936. The winery, Mas de Lavail was founded in 1999 with the purchase of the property by the Batlle family. The estate is situated in the heart of the MAURY Appellation, surrounded by the two ranges of the Corbières, on clay-limestone soil.

Part of their land stretches beneath the Cathar castle of Quéribus, resting on black schist soils. The name "Maury" derives from these black lands, known for their unique ability to retain the Sun's heat and release it to the vines during the cooler evenings. As a result, the Grenache and Carignan grapes show the estate's devotion to their terroir and winemaking craft which is evident in the exceptional wines they produce.

Organic agricultural practices are now at the forefront of the wine-growing approach to achieve full organic certification, alongside the preservation of existing biodiversity. Clearly, Grenache is the star here, as per the requirement of the Maury and newly designated Maury Sec AOCs, however, Syrah and Carignan (both Blanc and Noir) are far from just supporting acts, in fact producing stunning examples. Cropping is averaged at 29 HL per hectare across the domain, with the estate ranges at far less, and production levels of less than 10,000 cases annually point to grapes with exceptional concentration.

Carignan Blanc is a white-skinned mutation of the Carignan grape variety that is found in the wines of southern France and northwestern Spain. It is usually seen in full-bodied blended white wines with other local varieties, and in particular Grenache Blanc, Terret and Viognier. Varietally, Carignan Blanc makes a fresh, citrussy wine with good acidity. While Carignan Blanc is not as widely planted as it once was, it is still found throughout the vineyards of the Mediterranean coast, particularly in the Languedoc-Roussillon region. It is not a major grape variety in any AOC-level appellations, so varietal Carignan Blanc wines are usually labeled under the IGP Pays d'Herault title, or simply as Vin de France.
