Domaine Piétri-Géraud, Mademoiselle O, 2016
€16.00
A Banyuls fortified by mutage on the marc skins, also known as Rimage or Vintage: a new generation of Banyuls, which unlike its elders is raised in the absence of air. In this way it retains its purple robe, its flavours of sun-soaked cherries and velvety tannins. A round, generous wine with raspberry, blackcurrant and gooseberry notes and a hint of liquorice. For an aperitif, with sheep cheese toasts or as a dessert atop a fruit salad ...
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.
