Helyos 2002, Banyuls

Posted by Keith Wallace

So maybe it doesn’t have the same name recognition as Port, but a great vin doux naturel, as we tasted at last night’s annual Champagne & Dessert Wine Gala, proved, as it does every time, that there’s more to fortified vino than just juice from the Douro. From the more mature nuances of the Domaine la Tour Vieille 2003 to the younger, more mineral-and-fruit notes of the Helyos 2002 Banyuls showed, yet again, that when the mercury drops, reaching for a bottle of sweet fortification from Southwestern France is always–always–a good move.
