1967 wine Rivesaltes
The wine will carry a high alcoholic level at 17%, so the wine will last for well over 50 years. Wine Advocate scored 94 points. The 1967 Rivesaltes wine has a refined bouquet with marmalade, espresso, toffee and quince that is well-defined and very focused. There is natural energy encapsulated within these aromatics. The palate is medium-bodied with a sharp entry that is counterbalanced by its racy acidity and a real fieriness in its heart. This has a real edginess to it - a great Rivesaltes.

One of the most extraordinary tastings recently has been of Rivesaltes Vin Doux Naturels from 2000 to 1933. These naturally sweet fortified wines, from 16% to 17.5% abv, were unearthed by Montpellier-based oenologist Philippe Gayral. They are still in cask, to be bottled under his brand L'Archiviste. In 1950, 60 million litres of Rivesaltes VDN were drunk in France; today, just 1 million. Soon they will cease to exist. One or two bottles are a must for every cellar.
