Banyuls

Banyuls-dels-Aspres is a French commune , located in the department of Pyrenees-Orientales and the region Languedoc-Roussillon . Its inhabitants are called Banyulencs. It lies near the Mediterranean Ocean and just a few miles from the Catalonian region of Spain. Banyuls wines are sweet, fortified vins doux naturels. They range in hue from golden-green to amber to deep red. They are predominately made from Grenache Noir, along with other Grenache grapes and a very little Muscat. In taste, they are similar to a Rasteau from the southern Rhone (also Grenache Noir) and a ruby Port.
