2012 Banyuls blanc, Coume del Mas 0,5l
Weißer Banyuls - eine absolute Rarität!
Köstliches Bouquet von Quitte, Ingwer, Kokosnuss und gerösteten Nüssen, dazu Zitrusaromen, Grapefruit, Pfirsich und Kiwi. Cremig, frisch und sehr geschmacksintensiv am Gaumen. Ein verführerischer Appetitmacher!
"... features layers of quince preserves and dates studded with crystallized ginger; frosted with pistachio-, almond- and hazelnut-cream; all wreathed with headily-perfumed heliotrope and gardenia, in a sumptuously confectionary yet somehow simultaneously vibrant performance. The characteristic phenolic impingement associated with Grenache Gris as well as an improbably sheer juiciness for a wine this thickly-rich, make for a finish that genuinely invigorates. This is as fine a wine of its genre as I have ever encountered, and while I lack experience with aging white Banyuls, I anticipate - by analogy with white Maury - that this will delight through at least 2017 and quite possibly long thereafter. Certainly anybody who sets out to test that speculation will have a ball in the process!" (David Schildknecht in Robert parker's Wine Advocate, Jan. 2014)
