Coume del Mas 'Galateo' Banyuls Rouge 2019
This product is currently sold out.
‘Galateo’ is 100% old vine Grenache Noir fortified on skins - a key procedure that helps extraction of colour, tannin and prevents oxidation. The wine is then aged in 225 litre, older oak casks for a minimum of six months before bottling. It is a dense, deep wine that is a fascinating match with red meat, or alternatively used as a dessert wine for chocolate, dark fruits or cheese. The 2019 vintage is an absolute stunner...
“Coume del Mas ‘Galateo’ Banyuls is youthful, packed with smoky dark fruit and even though it is sweet, it somehow tastes much drier than it is. Underlying power is tempered by elegant restraint, the tannins are compact yet extremely fine, like layer upon layer of tissue paper, and there’s freshness, beautiful balance and persistence.” - Julia Harding MW, Jancis Robinson
