Tasting Notes

The 1962 Rivesaltes has a potent, slightly oxidative bouquet not unlike a rancio, with scents of crème brûlée, toffee, walnut and smoke. With aeration there is a hint of furniture polish. The palate is medium-bodied with Clementine, brown spices, marjoram and walnut notes. This feels very harmonious with a nuanced, almost understated and very elegant finish. Excellent. Tasted with Philippe Gayral. 2018 - 2030

Score: 94Neal Martin, vinous.com, October 2018

Burnt sugar and shoe polish on the nose. Still vigorous on the palate, with fig and chocolate and hazelnut aromas on the finish. Long raisined finish with extraordinary persistence.
