Tasting Note: Light and fresh with a little bit of oxidised notes coming out. Now there was a year that we had a guy living above the shop who had a penchant for 'herbal cigarettes' so every so often there would be a waft of his chosen herbs coming into the shop. This wine has that waft coming off the nose of it. The palate has lovely balance, good acidity and a super mouthfeel.
Producer: Based in Banyuls-sur-Mer, the Cave de l'Abbé Rous produces and markets a fine range of AOC Collioure and Banyuls wines. Its name was chosen in homage to the Abbot who at the end of the 19th century established himself as the first wine merchant of Banyuls to finance the construction of a church for the village. It relies on 750 winegrowers and their 1150 hectares of vines among which it makes selections to develop its vats. With a unique know-how for the breeding of Banyuls and Banyuls Grand Cru, its range is very rich. La Cave de l'Abbé Rous has chosen an exclusive distribution in the traditional network of wine merchants and restaurateurs throughout France..
