Casa Blanca is the oldest family domain in the AOC, consisting of 10 hectares of carefully tended vines ranging in age from 70 to 100 years. This is the classic wine to pair with dark chocolate.

Made only from Grenache Noir, this sweet red wine from the SW of France is made?in the style of a Vintage Port, emphasizing the fresh fruit flavors in youth and meant for long ageing. This is a deep, intense sweet wine that pairs?well with chocolate.

Banyuls are fortified wines coming from the south of France. This bottle has just the right touch of sweetness and a delightful earthy, dark berry character. It's rich, dark red in color and has that extra layer of character from the Grenache tannins.
