Tasting Notes

The 1975 Rivesaltes "La Cuvée des Aigles" is the lesser sibling of the 1965 with attractive if not quite as show-stopping marmalade and quince aromas on the nose, marked by a tad more VA. The palate is attractive with a fine bead of acidity, just the right amount of spice, although it does not quite deliver that knockout blow on the finish. A leisurely Rivesaltes? Tasted with Philippe Gayral. 2018 - 2025

Score: 93Neal Martin, vinous.com, October 2018

Pale tawny in colour with a mahogany fade at the rim. The nose is intense with dried fig, salted almonds and a light savoury spice. The palate is rich on entry with a great intensity of honeyed and dried fruit. On the mid palate this mellows into more nutty, savoury flavours. The finish is round and supple without being overly sweet. There is still a core of dried fruits on the long finish which maintains a slightly nutty, nutmeg character. Moreish and complex.
