Tasting Notes

Mas Karolina is the project of Caroline Bonville, cousin of Olivier Bonville proprietor of one of our favorite Champagne houses Franck Bonville. Caroline originally hails from Bordeaux where much of her family still resides. Looking for her own property, she settled in the village of Maury located in the Roussillon. There, her restrained sensibilities are making some of the most pristine, clean and balanced wines in the region. As a first, we recently brought in a little bit of Caroline’s traditional Roussillon wines. Her 2014 Muscat de Rivesaltes is a gorgeously pure expression of this traditional style. The Muscat is from the granitic soils of the Lesquerde village, and shows the freshness and beautiful floral and tropical aromas of the grape. During fermentation the wine is fortified, leaving some residual sugar. Sitting at about 120 grams per liter, it is similar to a Muscat Beaumes de Venise. Its pretty, perfumed aromas make it an ideal foil for fruit and tart pairings. But don’t think this has to be an after-dinner wine—add a splash of soda and a little mint and you have one of the finest spring and summer aperitifs out there. (Keith Mabry, K&L Rhône buyer)
