Cuvée presentation

The name of this cuvée, Argile [French for 'clay'], is a reference to the name of the plot of land that was planted for the very first vinification. The grapes used in this cuvée are harvested from soil that is fast-ripening, with fermentation carried out in casks. The cuvée is then aged on lees for several months. Aromas of white fruits, with delicate saline notes, emanate from this wine. The palate is perfectly balanced between freshness and body.

Information about domain La Rectorie

Situated in Banyuls in the Roussillon, at less than a kilometer from the sea, La Rectorie (7 hectares) was passed down to the Parcé bothers. Having returned to the family property in the 1980s, Thierry and Marc extended their Banyuls production to that of very high quality dry white wines. Work in the vineyard wears the peasant traces of their great-grandmother, Thérèse's roots (animal draught cultivation, manual harvests, use of local grape varieties, etc.). Nowadays, it is managed by Marc and Thierry Parcé, for whom the age of the vines, the use of the ‘original' grape varieties and the controlled yields (20 to 25hl/hectare) are the key to successful vinifications. The domain bottles around 80,000 bottles every year. Most of the production is centered the vinification of Collioures rouges, but La Rectorie also produces white wines as well some Banyuls (15% of production). The wines are not fined.
