Banyuls Rimage, Vial Magnères - 2018

Beware, this 100% pleasure wine is a bomb of fruit and greed, that only Grenache brought to its peak of maturity allows! Its ageing in stainless steel tanks and its early bottling means that the fruit is not worn out but rather lovingly imprisoned in the bottle. It is full of notes of cherry, guignolet, peppermint and liquorice. The perfection of the type! Guide Vert RVF : 92/100

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...
