90% Grenache plus Carignan, Cinsault, Syrah

Color ranges from garnet red to mahogany according to age with powerful aromas balancing between black fruits and stewed fruits and subtle cocoa aromas. The wine is a sumptuous with the fineness of its tannins. Capable of extreme complexity and surprising elegance, this is the archetype of a fortified Grenache.

Banyuls, the most Southerly of the French Appellations with spectacular views of the Mediterranean or Catalan Pyrénées. The wines are dominated by Grenache.

In 1285 Arnau de ViIanova devised the fortification technique that the Banyuls wines get their Appellation and their seal of approval.

The production process, known in France as “mutage” (a neutral wine alcohol is added to the must to halt fermentation while sugar levels are still high, preserving the natural sugar of the grape. In this way, part of the natural sugar of the grape is preserved without modifying the aromas. The earlier the fortification takes place, the greater the natural sweetness of the wine. The wines are then matured in oak barrels, or outside in glass bottles exposed to the sun, allowing the wine to “maderise”. The maturation period is a minimum of ten months for Banyuls AOC.

The resulting wine bears a similarity to port but tends to be lower in alcohol (~16% vs. ~20%).
