Les Ânes Ailés

Banyuls-sur-Mer, Roussillon



From a fifty year old, south-facing parcel planted over sand and schist above the village of Banyuls. Mostly Carignan, which spent just a day on skins, the balance was made up of Grenache Noir, Gris and Blanc, which were destemmed by hand and macerated for ten days. After pressing, everything was assembled into vats until the following spring. Compact and elegant, you really feel the structure lent by the schist here, with fine tannins framing complex notes of red berries, sea salt and stones. An immense wine with a wonderful sense of place.
