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.


Rivesaltes 1963 wine

Rivesaltes is an appellation for the historic sweet wines of eastern Roussillon in the deep south of France. The sweet vin doux naturel wines produced in this area have been revered since at least the 14th Century. The technique used to make them is one of several employed for sweet wines. Unlike botrytized wines or ice wines, vins doux naturels are made by mutage, a process of stopping must fermenting while there is still a high level of natural sweetness.
