The vineyards of Domaine de Valcros are situated at Collioure, a picturesque fishing village on the Mediterranean coast and part of France's southern most AOC. The region produces rare fortified wines packed with ripe, red fruit flavours. Mainly Grenache Noir with a touch of Carignan, Banyuls is sometimes referred to as 'the Frenchman's tawny port' being, as it is, spicy and rich with hints of moccha and green herbs. Great with chocolate or blue cheeses. A very dark ruby-red in colour. Heady aromas of cherries, raisins and stewed red fruits with a touch of spice. On the palate sweet, strong and tart with a long finish redolent with further red fruit flavours of raspberries and plums. Makes for an excellent dessert wine. Try with tarte aux raisins, braised rabbit served with a chocolate sauce or a chunk of Roquefort cheese.
