Bin:  959

Alcohol percentage:  17%

Area:

Banyuls is inland from Collioure, south of Perpignan and not far from the Spanish border

Grape variety:

Old Grenache, with a little Grenache Gris and Grenache Blanc; fortified after a short maceration and aged in wood for one year

Producer:

Domaine de la Rectorie is owned by Marc Parcé. He has 24 hectares spread around the town of Banyuls. This wine is named after his grandfather

Old Bridge rating:

From the south of France, near Perpignan, this is fortified Grenache; reminiscent of a young Port, but without the fierce alcohol. Fascinating drink for the experimental enthusiast

Food match:

In smart French restaurants this is THE match for chocolate

Press review:

“The Parcés’ Banyuls Cuvée Léon Parcé – which spends around a year in small barrels – is gorgeously-scented with confitured and distilled black raspberry, maraschino, marzipan, mint, and rosemary. The pungent impingement of resinous herbs persists on the palate, lending a sense of invigoration and counterpoint to what is otherwise a seamlessly sweet, unctuous performance, and notes of bitter chocolate and brown spices add further fascination to the long, soothing yet stimulating finish of a seductive treat that should not wear out its welcome over the next several years.” erobertparker.com
