La Cave de l'Abbé Rous

There are no vineyards in France more startling to the eye than those that cascade down to the Mediterranean Sea just north of where the Pyrenees divide France from Spain. These logic-defying vines, grown on unnumbered terraces hewn out of the cliffs, also give rise to wines of great originality and quality. La Cave de l’Abbé Rous is essentially a co-operative of small growers in the choicest sections of Banyuls and Collioure. It makes wines at the highest quality level of the two appellations.

Property History:

Located in Banyuls-sur-Mer, the Abbé Rous wine cellar produces and markets a beautiful range of AOP wines Collioure and Banyuls. The name was chosen in homage to the Abbot who, at the end of the nineteenth century, was the first to produce and sell Banyuls wines to finance the construction of a church for the village. Quality is its requirement and this for all the stages of the production of wines, from the management of the vine to the vinification and through breeding and presentation. With a unique know-how for the breeding of Banyuls and Banyuls Grand Cru , its range is of great richness. Banyuls and Collioure, wines born from the alliance of the shale and the Grenache.

Worked with passion and talent by the winemakers, it gives birth to rich and powerful wines, rare and elegant.
