- The charming Laetitia Piétri makes excellent wines in both Collioure and Banyuls; the latter is made from 90% Grenache Noir and 10% Carignan. The majority of the wine is aged in large oak vats, with a small amount undergoing a Solera maturation. The result is rich and raisined, with bitter chocolate, brown sugar, dried fruits and very very ripe red berry flavours all evidenced. A real taste of the deep south - and a worthy alternative to Port.
Grenache with 10% Carignan, this is aged in large oak vats, with 10% 90% aged in barriques in the open air. Basically this is a solera, with some wine always deliberately left behind. It has a browning colour and nicely oxidised nose of sherried, slightly raisiny fruit, prunes and mocha coffee. The palate is lush and creamy, with a beautiful sweetness of Muscovado sugar, rich wild berry compote and delicate nuances of tea and tobacco. The pure, long finish fills in with a bittersweet dark chocolate and a nice edge of tannins and acidity.
