Rivesaltes, Domaine Casenobe 1972

Tasting Notes

The 1972 Rivesaltes is missing a little intensity on the nose, scents of orange rind, antique furniture, walnut and light peaty notes that don't quite click into fifth gear. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, touches of mandarin, dried fig, Chinese 5-spice and nutmeg with a precise if not powerful finish. There is just a hint of dark chocolate on the aftertaste, completing a fine Rivesaltes. Tasted with Philippe Gayral. 2018 - 2030

Strong rancio aromas, with some garrigue character as well as classic oil, tar and dried fruits. More fragrant than the Sobilane wines, with a relatively light body.
