Details

Banyuls Ambre Domaine de Traginer 500ml, Biodynamic wine, 'Vin Doux Naturel', a wine oozing complexity, high acidity backed up by notes of raisin, prune and date. Ambre is the traditional wine from the Banyuls region, alongside the less likable sounding, 'Rancio'. It is a white wine aged for a long time with oxidation, in the case of Traginer, this non vintage has an average age of 16 years. It has a deep gold colour and leads to incredible aromas of dried fruits, herbs, intense sweet spices, caramel and much more. The amazing thing about Banyuls is the acidity and even after 16 years, the freshness of the wine is incredible. A stunning match to all manner of strong blue cheeses but also anything with Christmas spices, nuts, honey etc, delicious.

The Domaine du Traginer is an 16 hectare estate which stands on steep schist slopes of Banyuls sur Mer, where the Pyrenees meets the Mediterranean Sea. It benefits from a very sunny exposure and has been farmed using organic and biodynamic methods since 1997, though Jean-François started experimenting some 10 years earlier. The vineyards have a very low yield, and they aim to heed to ancestral traditions in their purest form. Accordingly, part of the vineyard is still ploughed with the help of a mule, guided by his 'Traginer', the Catalan term for muleteers. Anicet, Jean-François's uncle, is the last Traginer in Banyuls, as well as the most famous. At Domaine du Traginer, they never use selected yeasts and enzymes, only the best grapes and natural fermentations. Some wines are produced without sulphites. This is traditional Banyuls at its best.
