La Cave de l'Abbé Rous 2002 Banyuls Grand Cru Christian Reynal

The finest Banyuls, aged for a minimum of six years in small oak casks, is a wine of transcendent quality. The nose is redolent of oranges macerated in brandy, giving way to a palate of silky intensity and great persistence. Superb dessert wine.
