Wine Details

Banyuls Vin Doux Naturel 2018, Sélection Parcellaire

AOP Banyuls Rimage
  • 50cl bottle

A powerful nose, shifting between black fruit and red berries, giving it a lovely freshness, subtly complemented by notes of cocoa. On the palate, it is sumptuous balanced between the solar strength of the wine and the fineness of its tannins. It has a great persistency with sweetness which develops greedily.

Vineyards

From terraced vineyards on old mica-schist from the Primary era, the grapes are hand-harvested when they are very ripe.

Vintage

The Languedoc Roussillon region bucked the trend this year. Unlike most French wine regions, the Roussillon was spared disastrous weather and extreme temperatures. Production in 2017 was higher than in 2016 and the vintage is of great quality.

Winemaking

The grapes are destemmed and crushed. The maceration is long with an addition of alcohol to favour the extraction of aromas and tannins.

Enjoy with:

  • Grilled and Roasted Red Meats
  • Pizza/Pasta
  • Casseroles/Stews
Perfect desert wine to pair with chocolate desserts
