Tasting Notes

The 1959 Rivesaltes from Domaine La Sobilane has a lively nose with scents of smoked walnut, mandarin, dried orange peel and sandalwood, all well-defined and never declining in the glass. The palate is very well balanced with good presence, the acidity nicely judged and any volatile acidity kept in check. Ginger, orange zest marmalade and a hint of curry powder lace the finish that lingers in the mouth. This is a beautiful old Rivesaltes. Drink: 2016 - 2030
