DOMAINE LA TOUR VIEILLE – COLLIOURE & BANYULS WINES
“Speaking of schist, Collioure is one of the most difficult areas in the world to cultivate the vine. Its impossibly steep, inhospitable slopes, which plunge into the Mediterranean near Spain’s border, cannot be mechanized.
Gnarled vines twist from the harsh, windswept landscape of pure bedrock. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre thrive with patient care, cleansed by the salty sea air.
Vincent Cantié is an artist from another era, eking out masterpieces from these foreboding, beautiful hills.”
Extract of Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant magazine, october 2017
