Nicolas Carmarans - Maximus 2020
Grapes: Fer Servadou
The 2020 vintage is definitely the best yet! It is low in alcohol (11.5%), lighter, fresher and more elegant than before. But flavour has not been sacrificed. This is in line with our tastings of this wine since Nicolas started producing it – it just keeps getting better and better.
A fresh, vibrant red wine that sees 16 days of carbonic maceration using whole bunches to ensure the freshness and flavour that you expect from a wine made using this process.
The wine is made from 100% Fer Servadou (also known as Mansois and Braucol) picked from vines that range in age from 20 to 50 years. This grape variety is local to the region around the Aveyron and then in an arc down to the area around the town of Gaillac which is just north of Toulouse.
