At first glance, this is a Grand Cru type of wine, i.e. a vintage with prolonged ageing. Admirable nose of mocha, dates, brown tobacco, figs, exotic fruits and citrus, and many other things emerging in the bottom of the glass. The palate is even better than the nose with a memorable integration of sugar, alcohol and of course tannin. It is long, obvious, and given the richness of the wine, disconcertingly easy to drink.

Technique

Viticulture

Selection of old vines (50 years on average) of Grenache noir (80%) blended with Carignan and Grenache gris, from the best terroirs and the latest parcels.

Oenology

To concentrate the cuvée, depending on the vintage, the must may be bled. The wine is then aged in old tuns for about seven to eight years, then bottled for a further two years.

Suggestions for accompaniment

Mœlleux fondant au chocolat, glace au café - Griottes au chocolat. It can also magnificently enhance "blue" cheeses.

Domain
The Vial Magnères cellar was built in the 1960s by Gaby Vial, the father-in-law of the late Bernard Sapéras. Mr Vial himself had taken over from his father-in-law, André Magnères, hence the name of the estate. When he arrived in 1985, Bernard Sapéras was only there to assist his father-in-law in the production of Banyuls. But he quickly developed a passion for winemaking, humbly imprinting his style and signature. Today, and since his tragic death during the 2013 harvest, the estate is in the hands of Olivier Sapéras (his son) and Laurent dal Zovo, a talented oenologist who also manages the viticulture team and, of course, the cellar.The 10-hectare vineyard is mainly located between Banyuls and Cerbère, on the coastal fringe overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. It includes several sectors, with different exposures and morphologies. The soils are made up of Cambrian metamorphic rocks, essentially composed of decomposing schist. The dominant grape variety is, as it should be, Grenache in its three colours: black (65%), grey (15%) and white (11%), often planted in the same parcels. This high proportion of white and grey Grenache dates back to the time when the estate mainly produced tiled Banyuls. Since then, the renewals (1200 to 1500 vines per year, on average) have been made by massal selection and from black Grenache. The remaining 9% is devoted to Syrah, Carignan and a small...
