Nicolas Carmarans – Mauvais Temps 2018
A super juicy, wonderfully precise cuvée of “Fer Servadou” & “Negret de Banhars” – two rare grape varieties at home in that wonderfully remote region of Aveyron. The wine comes with a gentle 12% only – yet has a warmth & spiciness to it that fits perfectly right now. Red fruits, pepper, smoke.
Nicolas Carmarans is originally from the region – spent years in Paris owning a natural wine bar before he returned home & basically put this remote region onto the wine lovers maps. Proper Legend, 1st Generation producer who’s inspired young winemakers like Pauline Broqua & many others. We`re surely biased but this truely is a „must know“ wine.
