Wine Advocate 90 points - A superb Banyuls that’s made from 90% Grenache and 10% Carignan, the ruby colored NV Banyuls Reserva (which has a portion of the blend vinified outside the cellar; i.e. left out in the sun) offers lots of dried figs and plum fruit, almond, bitter orange, chocolate and sweet spice go to go with a medium to full-bodied, rounded, supple and layered feel on the palate. This beauty has loads of character, is perfectly balanced, and will drink nicely for 5-8 years.  (Apr 2015)

Wine Advocate 88 points - Over the past quarter century, La Tour Vieille has built up an impressive reputation, and their most recent releases demonstrate that they are among the elite estates of Roussillon. The late-bottled La Tour Vieille Banyuls Reserva leads with cocoa powder, cardamom, vanilla and caramel, comes to the palate with an unusual combination of candied raspberry, chocolate, and brown spices, and finishes with impressive persistence if less sheer concentration or polish than its vintage counterparts.  (Oct 2007)

Wine maker notes
Being midway between fruity & grilled, it affirms characteristic of oxidation: prunes, coffee, Moka. It is a classic accompaniment for desserts of dark chocolate, but also perfect with blue cheeses (Fourme d’Ambert, Bleu d’Auvergne, Roquefort , Gorgonzola or the King of British cheeses – a good Stilton). All flavours ‘conspire’ to make it sing : dried or grilled fruit, cinnamon, fig, bitter orange, almonds…

Technical notes
Alcoholic Degree : 16% Volume Varieties : A mixture of Grenache Noirs, Grenache gris & Carignan Vinification : The harvested grapes are initially partly split and then subjected to ‘mutage sur grains’ Élevage : The wine spends one year in ‘bonbonnes’ as part of the maturing process before being further aged in oak barrels for 4 to 5 more years. This is an ageing process based on oxidation, which seals the characteristic of each vintage. ‘Reserva’ is a traditional Banyuls.
