Winemaker notes

The "rimage" style of Banyuls is made in an oxygen-free environment - that is to say, exclusively in stainless steel tanks rather than an oak vessel. The estate produces their own estate-grown and distilled grape spirit for their Banyuls. The final wine exhibits very pure berry and dark chocolate notes with balancing acidity. The residual sugar is 105g/L.

Viticultural Notes

The goblet-pruned vines are planted on terraced slopes of schist that face the Bay of Paulilles in the Mediterranean. Grapes are hand-harvested. The yield is approximately 15-18hl/ha.
