Winegrower's notes

The Banyuls Controlled Designation of Origin production area is bounded by the 4 ports of the Côte Vermeille: Collioure, Port-Vendres, Banyuls and Cerbère and covers a total of 617 hectares.
The soils are gray cambian schist, the vines are established on steep slopes or in very narrow terraces retained by low walls facing the sea. These very poor soils allow deep rooting.

Tasting Notes

Dried fruit flavors of raspberry and red plum dominate the nose and mouth, while notes of sweet mulled spice, clove-pricked orange rind, pepper, walnut skin and bittersweet cocoa glimmer throughout. Full and rich but lively, with medium acidity and a zippiness to the finish. Enjoyable now, but this will benefit from another 5–10 years in the cellar.
