Regular price $38.00
Unit price  per 

Same 'galets' big, rounded stones as Châteauneuf -du-Pape, beyond biodynamic Grenache and Mouvedre, no need to worry about over extraction here! and at a fraction of the price. Better some get some before I drink it all.  

Structure, grip, stony minerality, juicy red currants - this wine's got it all. I'm ready for fall now !

more info from Clos des Millesimes:

"Domaine Danjou-Banessy is located in the town of Espira de l'Agly, north of the city of Perpignan in the Pyrenees Orientales. Benoît Danjou and his brother Sébastien inherited from their grandfather this old vineyard which was used for the production of Rivesaltes. Today, they manage around fifteen hectares of parceled vines, aged 15 to 120 years. The vineyard is made up of a wide variety of soils (shale, sandstone, clay-limestone, quartz, pure clay, sand and silt), which requires plot work on different islets. Each cuvée produced represents a plot, a soil, a locality, a way of working. Benoît and Sébastien practice biodynamic techniques to enrich the soil and the vineyard is certified in organic farming.

Roboul is a blend of Mourvèdre and Grenache Noir (aged 15 to 30 years-old), grown on clay-limestone and pebble soils on the Agly Terraces at a place called "Le Roboul". The whole harvest is crushed, then infused and the alcoholic fermentation takes place with indigenous yeasts. Aging lasts 12 months in barrels. The wine is bottled by gravity in the lunar phase and is not yeasted, not acidified, not chaptalized, not fined and not filtered."
