Rivesaltes, Domaine St Michel 1971

Tasting Notes

Tawny colour. Deep, layered and savoury on the nose with confit fruit, dried ceps and preserved citrus. The palate is chiselled and focused, the sweetness melting into intense fruit and nut characters. Bright and incredibly fresh at over 50 years old, this highly refined Rivesaltes could be enjoyed as aperitif, with cheese/dessert or as a digestif. Impressive and very fine.
