The quality Rivesaltes 1957 wine is a great birthday gift. The wine will carry high alcoholic level at 17% so the wine will last for well over 60 years, Robert Parker 93 points.

The 1957 Rivesaltes from Domaine La Sobilane is noticeably darker in color than coeval vintages. The bouquet is a little smudged, but gains some clarity in the glass: burnt toffee, walnut, just a touch of volatility and a light sea spray influence. The palate is medium-bodied with marmalade, stem ginger, rhubarb and white pepper, well poised with a long tail on the finish. The ranks alongside the excellent 1956.
