Winemaker's Notes

Enticing aromas of ripe apricot, orange blossom, peach and pineapple. Full and luscious wine characterized by further notes of stone fruits, leather, dried herbs and anise. Mouth creamy but not heavy, finish with a soft tip perfect for grilled fish.

Critical Acclaim

"Mas Carlot fashions one of the most distinctive wines in France, the Clairette de Bellegarde, from vines planted in 1947. The 2009 is the finest example of this cuvee I have yet tasted. Floral notes intermixed with hints of tangerines, nectarines, white peaches and wet rocks emerge from this light to medium-bodied white. It represents a naked expression of winemaking that has lots of finesse, perfume and overall character. Drink it over the next 1-2 years"
