Domaine de Bila-Haut Banyuls Vin Doux Naturel Sélections Parcellaires 2021
The Domaine de Bila-Haut Banyuls is a 100% Grenache Noir Vin Doux Naturel from ancient terraced vineyards. The Banyuls is made from hand-harvested grapes where the fermentation is stopped by the addition of spirit. The wine is then aged for 8 months in large vats before bottling and undergoes a further 3 months maturation prior to the release. A powerful nose, shifting between black fruit and red berries, giving it a lovely freshness, subtly complemented by notes of cocoa. On the palate, it is sumptuous balanced between the solar strength of the wine and the fineness of its tannins. It has a great persistency with sweetness which develops greedily.
