2016 Now BANYULS, Cuvée Léon Parcé, Domaine de La Rectorie. Roussillon, South of France (50cl Bottle)

Bin:  959

Alcohol percentage:  17%


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


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
