"The Paulilles vineyard surrounds the bay of Paulilles in the heart of the appellation of Collioure and Banyuls. Les Clos de Paulilles is owned and managed by the Daure family, one of the most influential winemaking families in the Rousillon. Rimage is a Catalan word which means vintage. Therefore a rimage Banyuls is a fortified wine in which all grapes come from a certain vintage, much like a Colheita or vintage Port. Made of 100% black grenache, this Banyuls exhibits a dark black-purple robe, with intense blackberry jam and succulent rich flavors. This is France's answer to Port, and the absolute best wine to pair with chocolate! "
