The Mas Blanc 2006 Banyuls Rimage represents a blend of two Grenache parcels. Plum and black raspberry preserves seasoned with tonka bean and cocoa powder in the nose lead to a rich, expansive, creamy, if somewhat superficially sweet palate. On the other hand, if one wants to truly use this as dessert wine - pairing with among others its classic accompaniment, chocolates - then that sweetness will come in handy. There is a hauntingly soothing, spicy cling here that manages not to be cloying. One could enjoy this over at least the next 4-5 years.

Wine maker notes
The quality of the Rimage Banyuls wines is linked to their vintage. Processed every year, they do not necessarily all deserve the name “Rimage”. They are harvested on the upper slopes of the “Junquets”. Black Grenache grapes dominate in percentage (95%) and are completed by 5% of Mourvedre grapes. Surface area : 2 hectares Wine making: the grapes are removed from the stalks, trodden by foot , fermentation is controlled, fermentation is stopped before the grape is trodden, the grape is left to soak for 3 weeks. Yield: 18 to 22 hectolitres per hectare Maturing: The Rimage Banyuls are matured away from the air in closed vats. They are kept like this for 8 months before being bottled. Characteristics: very fruity, concentrated, agreable , balanced. It can be expected to age very, very well. Serve with: red fruit, kidneys cooked in Banyuls, Moroccan dishes. Shelf life: once open, should be drunk rapidly, like the great Port vintages. In a good cellar the wine could be kept for about 50 years.
