About this Wine

Rhône meet the Languedoc in this ethereally lovely red blend, Robin’s de facto house red. Think along the lines of a classic Châteauneuf-du-Pape with a soupcon more freshness – a factor of Mas Brunet’s location in windswept limestone plateau of the Terrasses de Larzac.

Tasting notes

With a structure that matches Côtes-du-Rhône but the prettiest of delicate nuances, Mas Brunet is a firm favourite of the Swig team. Based just north of Montpellier and round the corner from Mas de Daumas Gassac (the Lafite of the Languedoc), the hot Southern French climate and dry summers make it tricky to retain a fresh finesse in Rhone varietals. Yet the Mas Brunet Cuvée du Mazet manages to jump straight out of the glass  with bright violety peppery soft fresh fruit, and nuances of mountain herbs and spice. This welcoming style of wine simply lives to please. It is a definite pasta wine. Or steak. Or fish. Or curry. Or cheese. It is the ultimate red wine for all food, people and life!

FROM THE PRESS

“'I am a huge fan of this estate and its utterly delicious wines. Situated around 40 minutes north of Montpellier, Mas Brunet makes Côtes-du-Rhône-shaped wines but with more lift and vivacity than you might have thought possible from this style of red. With a mere 13% alcohol on board, and made from Carignan, Cinsault, Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah, Cuvée du Mazet is a polished, spicy, silky, medium-weight red with a faint whiff of woodsmoke in among the heady red and black fruit flavours. It is the definitive red wine for all palates and all occasions.'”
