Rivesaltes, Domaine de Sobilane 1968
The 1968 Rivesaltes has a more powerful bouquet than the 1969: dried honey, marmalade, fig, hints of marzipan and Chinese 5-spice. Like the 1969 this is very well defined. The palate is beautifully balanced with a viscous texture. There are enticing notes of marmalade, nougat, cafe latte, clove, white pepper and fennel with a long and sustained finish that is a pure unadulterated joy. Superb. Tasted with Philippe Gayral. 2018 - 2032

Concentrated fruit but there’s a funky, earthy, dusty character too. Brick and petrichor on the palate. Such a strange, compelling set of flavours.
