Tasting Notes

The 1950 Rivesaltes, which came from cask barrel, had a more complex bouquet compared to the 1951 or 1952, with a light marine, seaweed influence that is very attractive. I admire the detail here, the focus. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity that counterbalances the lightly spiced honeyed fruit, segueing into a cohesive and harmonious finish offering brown spices, dried quince and a touch of barley sugar. This is a gorgeous Rivesaltes that is one of the best that I have tasted from Domaine La Sobilane. Drink 2017-2035.
