This stunning vin doux natural (or natural sweet 'dessert')wine from Domaine La Tour Vieille in coastal Collioure is a treasure.  Made from 35-70 year old vine Grenache Gris and Grenache Blanc with neutral grape spirit added to stop fermentation and retain the natural sweetness, otherwise known as fortifying. The wine tastes of ripe pear with hints of aniseed and garrigues and is ideal with desserts like Tarte Tatin, Ginger Bread(or Ginger Bread men for the holidays!) or creme brulee.  

With a rich blue cheese they are stunning (similar to a ruby port with stilton), and with the classic pears poached in red wine they are ideal. Banyuls, like Port in fact, is one of the wines that can stand up to chocolate. So don't be shy to pair it with something indulgently chocolatey.
