Vinyer de la Ruca

Banyuls-sur-Mer, Roussillon



Grenache from a twenty year old vineyard in Cosprons, just a few kilometres north of Banyuls. The vines are planted over granite on a steep north facing slope some four hundred metres above sea level. The grapes are crushed by foot and after four days are pressed off to old barrels for nine months of élevage. This is deeply savoury, pairing dark, sun-kissed fruit, minerals and wildflowers to brilliant effect.
