About this product


"This satiny grenache noir is filled with sweet cherry flavors - from the dark flesh to the almond-flavored pit. It's fresh and concentrated without the least bit of jamminess, hints of hay and stony minerality keeping it true to the locality. For a square of dark chocolate - nothing more is needed."

Michel Chapoutier takes a departure away from the Rhône Valley with his fine dessert red wine, Banyuls. The appellation overhangs the Mediterranean Sea on the southern French coast bordering Spain and sits atop soils of stony schist soil. The soil and the unique climatic conditions provide a perfect breeding ground for Grenache that transforms itself into a rich, sumptuous fortified red with coffee, mocha and toffee notes.
