Wine maker notes
The vineyards were planted in the 1950ís and 1960ísto the current varietals. The vines are trained using a system called Cordon de Royat, which helps maintain lower fruit production. Mas Carlot limits yields to around 45hl/ha, which is one-third below what the appellation allows. Nathalie likes to wait during harvest - picking late to obtain the maximum maturity for each grape varietal. Mas Carlot has 20 hectares planted to white varietals. The Marsanne-Roussanne is made of 50% Marsanne from 25 year-old vines and 50% Roussanne. The wine is aged sur lie in tank after fermentation. This wine reveals abundant quantities of minerals, orange blossom, pineapple and citrus presented in a medium-bodied, fresh, lively style.
