2015 Mas Karolina Côtes du Roussillon-Villages (Previously $17)

SKU #1339353 89-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2015 Cotes du Roussillon Villages is another winner from Mas Karoline that offers lots of blue fruits and floral notes to go with full-bodied richness, solid mid-palate depth and a ripe, sexy and fun style that just begs to be drunk. Made from Grenache, Carignan, and Syrah aged in 300-liter barrels, it’s absolutely worth the going rate. (JD)  (4/2017)

We met winemaker Caroline Bonville through our relationship with her cousin Olivier of Champagne house - Franck Bonville. Based much further south, in the hinterlands of Roussillon - near the Spanish border on the Mediterranean side - Caroline is making superbly rich and fleshy reds. The region is warm and her wines show that lovely ripe polished fruit. Based on a mix of soils ranging from the black and brown schist of Maury to the granite of nearby Lesquerde, she crafts Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre using organic practices and minimal intervention. The 2015 shows the ripeness of the vintage with its lovely layered flavors of berry compote, black licorice and sweet baking spices. It is a sexy and sultry red that is a perfect introduction to her style, the region and makes an ideal outdoorsy red for serving with the grilled meats of her Catalonian region.

This spicy and almost jammy wine will remind you of a well made Zinfandel with its bold flavors of spiced berries and ripe cherries. There is a touch of earth to go with all that juicy fruit and this never borders on heavy or over extracted. Here is a well priced and bold Old World wine with New World crossover appeal.

If you are a fan of the big wines like Amador Zinfandel and other Roussillon's like the Lafage, this is a must try. The Mas Karolina is super rich, powerful and sweet fruited dark red wine. This is a glass of "le soleil" from the south of France!

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
