Wine Advocate, tasting notes, 95 points

Philippe Gayral purchased the single foudre of 1958 Rivesaltes from Chateau Villargeil. It has a very harmonious and pure bouquet with scents of orange rind, quince, Earl Grey and a touch of dry tobacco, exuding great clarity. Vivid! The palate is very well defined with quince and marmalade on the entry. There is no sense of heaviness here, but there is a heartwarming, sensual and viscous texture that seduces the senses, with just the right amount of spice enlivening the finish. This is superb. Drink 2017-2035.

Rivesaltes 1958 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.
