Domaine Piétri-Géraud, cuvée Joseph Géraud 2010
€18.70
A Banyuls laced with brown highlights. Roasted notes with a dominant walnut, tobacco, prune and cocoa that lingers in the mouth after an attack of dried fruit. A superb wine, balanced, with a long finish, with perfectly integrated tannins. Pure gourmet delight!
Description

Details

The Domaine Pietri Geraud is located on the magnificent vineyards of Collioure and Banyuls, vertiginous landscape terraces overlooking the Mediterranean and listed as world heritage sites of UNESCO. The domaine of 26 hectares is operated by two generations of women: Maguy PIETRI-GERAUD and Laetitia, her daughter. In this way, five generations of Collioure winemakers have followed each other on the steep slopes of the communes of Collioure and Banyuls.

It is on this last link in the Pyrenees chain, bordered by the Mediterranean Sea, that hang the shale terraces forming the Collioure and Banyuls appellations; a rough terroir, steeped in a strong identity where all is still cultivated by hand. The vines give the best of themselves but yields remain low: the Domaine Pietri Geraud average is, depending on the years, around 22hl / ha. The wines of this traditional and ancestral vintage are vinified and matured in the heart of the village, close to the Château Royal and the famous Clocher de Collioure. Over a period of forty years, by various circumstances, the Domaine has stretched towards the Roussillon Plain, around the small village of Ortaffa. There, facing the Canigou, the clay-limestone soils give rise to the tasteful Muscat de Rivesaltes and the Côtes du Roussillon, completing the range of the Domaine PIETRI-GERAUD.
