Domaine du Mas Blanc

The winery is located in the municipality of Banyuls-sur-Mer on the Mediterranean in the French region of Roussillon. In 1910 the country doctor Gaston Parcé married into an old wine-growing family, which is considered to be the foundation of the winery. His son Dr. André Parcé established the good reputation of the estate with his wines. He was also mayor of Banyuls-sur-Mer and became famous for his resistance as an INAO core member against the upgrading of Château Mouton-Rothschild to the Premier Cru. In 1977, the special Banyuls variant "Rimage" (meaning a vintage) was revived here. Today, the estate is managed in the third generation by Jean-Michel Parcé. The vineyards cover 25 hectares. The main varieties grown are Grenache Blanc, Grenache Noir, Mourvèdre, Roussanne and Syrah. Among others, the AC wines Banyuls (Collita, Doctor Parcé, Hors d'Age vieilli en Sostrera, Mât Blanc, Rimage la Coume) and Collioure (L'Agoulle, Can Réde, Clos du Moulin, Cosprons Levants, Llose) are produced.
