The 2009 Costieres de Nimes Les Enfants Terribles is superb. Its dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by notes of blackberries, blueberries, camphor, licorice and sauteed mushrooms. The wine exhibits good density and richness as well as a heady finish. It should drink nicely for 5-6 years.
This is one of the best run estates in Costieres de Nimes. Owned by the husband and wife team of Nathalie Blanc-Mares and Cyril Mares, with the charming, passionate Nathalie running Mas Carlot and Cyril in charge of the neighboring estate of Mas des Bressades.
