2019 Domaine de la Tour Vielle Banyuls 'Rimage'
Got chocolate?? Get this wine! Banyuls sits only two kilometers from the Spanish border; it is famous for its fortified wines.This wine is made from 90% Grenache, 10% Carignan from 45+ year-old vines, whose fermentation is arrested by the addition of distilled spirits; the resulting wine is sweet and fruity with about 16 percent alcohol. This is France’s answer to Port, and the absolute best wine to pair with chocolate! It’s medium ruby/opaque color is followed by perfumed notes of flowers, violets and juicy, jammy fruits. It’s medium to full-bodied and nicely textured, and leans firmly towards the more fresh, elegant side of Banyuls.
