Tasting Notes

“Delicate” is not a word I would have used 15 years ago to introduce a Carignan from Roussillon - so we can all change and learn! The Les Myrs is usually about 12% alc, has elegant soft spices (think five spice) and red fruits, held together by the finest of tannins and acidity. Savoury feel overall. Fine. - Michael L

Located at Espira, a few kilometres away from Rivesaltes, Domaine Danjou-Banessy is an old family estate that was producing only fortified and dry rancio wines until Benoit took over from his father 10 years ago. His brother, Sebastien, an English teacher, joined the domaine full time 5 years ago. They are now producing dry whites and reds from very old vines of local grapes such as their rare and original carignan gris. Their soil has always been free from any chemicals; their father and grandfather were bio before anyone else. They are as non-interventionist as possible in the cellar. Benoit and Sebastien are Catalans but friends with many neo-vignerons that came from all over the world to Roussillon to produce great wines. Tradition and open-mindedness could explain the quality of their wines. - Importer Note
