Details

Banyuls Blanc Domaine de Traginer, Biodynamic wine, 'Vin Doux Naturel', Biodynamic Wine, elegant and salty with rich sweetness and smooth almond and stone fruit palate. The white Banyuls from Traginer is made in a youthful style aiming to preserve the pure sweetness of the Grenache Blanc grapes and the firm backbone of the schist terroir. It is an incredible depth and finish, the acidity is sappy and the balance is perfect. Expect notes of sweet almond, very ripe peach, mango and tropical fruit, a little marzipan. Outstandingly good.

The Domaine du Traginer stands on steep schist slopes of Banyuls sur Mer, where the Pyrenees finds the Mediterranean Sea. It covers 8 hectares and benefits from a very sunny exposure; the wines come under the Collioure and Banyuls appellations. In 1988, Jean-François started working on some vineyards using organic and biodynamic methods. The vineyards have a very low yield, about 20 hectolitres per hectare. Since September 1997, the vineyard has been changed to organic and biodynamic methods of cultivation in order to comply with 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, we do not use yeasts and enzymes, only good grapes. Some wines are produced without sulphites. So that you can taste true wines.
