Details

Banyuls Rimage Domaine de Traginer, Biodynamic wine, 'Vin Doux Naturel', rich and bursting with dark cherry fruit and sweet spice, ludicrously delicious sweet red. This is a wow factor wine if ever there was one. Banyuls Rimage is the younger style from the appellation. It is fortified with grape spirit to leave natural residual sugar. The wine is then aged for a short period in 'foudre', larger, old oak barrels and finally bottled with a tiny amount of sulphur. Dark, sweet unctuous bit with immense freshness, makes your ubiquitous Port seem like a clumsy mess by comparison. Try this wine with some blue cheese or anything chocolate, it is a stunner. Nearly onto the 2016 which is delicious!

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.
