Marc and Thierry Parcé have been bottling their wines since 1984, but the vineyard has been in their family for generations passed down from their great grandmother, Therese Parcé. Widowed very young, she stopped making wine on the estate following the death of her father, Marcelin Reig. She ran the estate for half a century until 1969. She was an extraordinary winemaker as well as a brave and strong-minded woman with simple tastes and was nicknamed by the family “Theresette”. We owe to her our agricultural roots. The method of vinification at Domaine de La Rectorie, depends on the vineyard : there are over thirty different patches of vineyards influenced by varying exposures to the sun and different altitudes (ranging from 0-400 meters), so that by the time we have finished harvesting, we have potentially made over 30 different wines. The age of the vines, controlling the yields and maintaining the original grape varieties… only in these simple ways can we maintain the identity of the terroir. The main grape variety is Grenache Noir, used for Banyuls, together with a little Syrah, Carignan and Mourvedre for the ‘Collioure’ wine. The whites are made from Grenache Gris. Read less

I found this bottle of wine when I visited Amphora Wines [www.amphora-wines.co.uk] to collect another wine that I had agreed to buy over the internet.At £17.50 it was expensive and probably overpriced but I remembered my trip a few years ago to that part of the South of France [between Perpignan and the Spanish border] with great pleasure,Domaine de la Rectorie does have its own website [ www.larectorie.com] from which I discovered that vineyards had been in the Parce family for at least a century but they only started making their own wine in 1984.They now work 30 hectares spread over 30 plots and the vines average 50 years old.They also make a white wine and a Banyuls and further research reveals that this red is made up of 48% grenache,26% couriouse with the rest being made up of carignan and mourverde.I opened my bottle last night to accompany my steak and I have to report that I liked it.It is fairly dry but there is plenty of fruit there and it is also quite spicy.Ifinished the bottle this evening and found that a day of being open had softened it up considerably.Overall I would say this is a quality bottle of wine
