Tasting Notes

The 1966 Rivesaltes Riveyrac Rancion "Cuvée Fernand Baixas" from the co-operative Riveyrac has a lucid mahogany color. The nose is quite intense with dark cherry, marmalade, a touch of cola and shoe polish. The palate is well balanced with cola, rosewater, red plum and ginger on the entry, delicate at first and then building in the mouth to a harmonious and refined finish, with just sufficient dryness to beg another sip.
