A selection of the estate’s oldest Grenache vines, the Banyuls ‘Vieilles Vignes’ 1985 was hand-harvested and vinified traditionally: foot-trodden and fermented in stainless steel tank with native yeasts, it was aged for 10 years in 650-liter oak demi-muids before bottling. Always limited, a small portion of its production was set aside for inclusion in the estate’s library of its most important wines, a practice inaugurated by Dr. André Parcé in 1947.

Now part of the Domaine du Mas Blanc legacy project, Sotolon Selections joined third-generation winemaker Jean-Michel Parcé in evaluating each bottle, selecting only the best of these for re-bottling in a 375-ml format—assurance of the wine’s impeccable provenance and quality. Quantities are necessarily limited.
