Description

There was a southern French tradition during the 19th and 20th centuries (mostly fizzling out around the 1980s) that saw many small family producers crafting fortified wines that aged for absurd lengths of time in barrel. When these vins doux naturels (fortified sweet) wines fell from the grace of popularity, most winemakers left the barrels where they were until their rediscovery.In the early 2000s, Phillipe and Sandrine Gayral (who now own the largest collection of vin doux naturel wines from the 1900s), started scouring the countryside of Rivesaltes, Banyuls, and Maury in search of these “forgotten barrels.” These wines sat in casks for decades until it was discovered by the Gayrals and bottled at their home base , without any additions or treatment.
