Chapoutier Banyuls 2007
Chapoutier’s stellar list of wines is among the best in France with the prestige bottlings fetching prices well into the hundreds. So why is it their excellent desert wine from the Pyrenees such bargain? It’s because the market for desert wines is as soft as vicuna. But in tragedy lies opportunity – for you to buy and drink this wonderful grenache that’s not too sweet but has a great raisin, spice and plum profile.
