Rivesaltes, Gorges Du Soleit 1963. Tasting notes, Wine Advocate, 93 Points, Drink Date
2014 - 2035
The 1963 Rivesaltes from Domaine Gorges du Soleil, which sells almost all its production to tourists, has a fragrant bouquet with kirsch, marmalade, salted liquorices and furniture polish that gathers momentum in the glass. The palate is very smooth and sensual in the mouth. There is very impressive weight here, but it does not overwhelm. The acidity is well judged and it just glides across the mouth with liquorices, clove and tangy Seville orange marmalade notes. This feels very cohesive in the mouth and it will dole out a lot of pleasure of the next few years. Superb.
