M. Chapoutier Domaine de Bila-Haut Banyuls
Details of productionSpread out over steep, narrow terraces, the Banyuls appellation overhangs
the Mediterranean Sea. The vineyards are rooted in stony schist soils from
the Primary era. This Banyuls is a "vin doux naturel,” a fortified wine that is
exceptional and age-worthy.
The crop is hand-harvested when grapes are very ripe and the grapes are
destemmed and crushed. Maceration is long with an addition of alcohol to
favour the extraction of aromas and tannins. The wine is aged in vats from 16 to 20 months.
From garnet red to mahogany according to the wines age. A powerful nose, with a mix of black fruits and stewed fruits subtly brought together by cocoa aromas. Sumptuous mouthfeel, there is balance between the strength of the wine and the fineness of its tannins. It has a great persistency with sweetness which continues to develop.
