Mas Grand Plagniol

Cyril Marès has several vintages under his belt now and father Roger has happily handed over title to the domaine . The wines always show exceptional aromatic appeal, supple texture and uncannily intelligent balance between fruit and oak. We never seem to buy enough of them, mainly because they have little to sell. Wines like these offer incontrovertible proof that not much money can buy you a lot of love. In a market now brimming with Nimois wines, these remain at the top of the pile.

Available Wines

Mas Grand Plagniol 2012 Rouge ‘Excellence’ (Syrah, Costieres de Nimes)

(100% Syrah) There is a swaggering flamboyance to this wine that is impossible to ignore. What differentiates it, as usual, from the long parade of big, ripe wines is the rigorous fidelity to Syrah of its punchy aroma and the gloss and thickness of its texture, so exemplary of the Gard in a great vintage. This wine is a great value year in and year out, but especially so in a great one.

Mas Grand Plagniol 2014 Costières de Nîmes Rouge ‘Tradition’

(50% Syrah, 50% Grenache)  The great ones do their best work in the lesser vintages, as proved by Cyril in years like 2008 and 2002. We challenge you to find a wine that better combines aromatic flair, suave texture and sheerly delicious spicy Rhône fruit at such a silly price.

Mas Grand Plagniol 2015 Costières de Nîmes Rosé

(30% Syrah, 50% Grenache, 20% Cinsault) Cyril has always managed to keep his boisterously perfumed and fruity pink wine safely within the bounds of good taste while never cheating in the pleasure department.

Mas Grand Plagniol 2016 Blanc ‘Tradition’ (Costieres de Nimes)

Tired of always being accused of making a Viognier, Cyril finally decided to season his perennially scented, succulent and fresh white wine with a little. The insiders have always known, of course, that Grenache Blanc is just as aromatic and sumptuous a grape variety. Rhône white gets no better than this – certainly not at this absurdly low price. This has become over the years our most sought-after French white wine. It is given skin-contact for added texture, while the malolactic fermentation is blocked to preserve acidity.

Mas Grand Plagniol 2016 Costières de Nîmes Rosé

(30% Syrah, 50% Grenache, 20% Cinsault) Cyril has always managed to keep his boisterously perfumed and fruity pink wine safely within the bounds of good taste while never cheating in the pleasure department. It ages with unexpected grace.

(50% Syrah, 50% Grenache) The great ones do their best work in the lesser vintages, as proved by Cyril in years like 2008 and 2002. We challenge you to find a wine that better combines aromatic flair, suave texture and sheerly delicious spicy Rhone fruit at such a silly price.
