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. The Cotes Catalanes is a blend of old-vine Carignan and Grenache Noir. With notes of ripe raspberry and spicy pepper on the palate the wine is velvety and smooth, and delightfully dynamic.

    The 2015 vintage is pure and deep, landing some of the highest critical praise to date. Caroline’s wine is a blend of Grenache and Carignan and shows the vintage’s hallmark qualities by delivering a deep, satisfying richness with flavors of raspberry coulis, dark chocolate and exotic spices. The wine is saturated and long on the palate.

    Not as powerful as many of its Southwest France counterparts, the wine has a weight that skews much more towards medium rather than heavy. Super-smooth and very fruity, this is a nice little wine that’ll definitely be a dinner party crowd-pleaser.

    Beautifully crafted southwest French blend! The Grenache lends very clean and fresh blue and black fruit: plums, blackberry, and blueberries; while the acid from Syrah rounds out the richness and also lends a touch of elegance reminiscent of more expensive wines. Great direct import value for your everyday enjoyment!
