Tasting notes, 86 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Bottled in 2012, Domaine du Duy is from the same family as Domaine de la Rectorie and the wine was purchased in a Bordeaux barrel. The 1973 Banyuls has a light garnet core with a russet rim. I have to say, here I found the nose a little fatigued and grubby. The palate is better, with a sweet aniseed and licorice entry. It is missing a little backbone, but is cleaner than the nose implied with a dry, nicely focused finish. Tasted December 2012.
