Wine Advocate, tasting notes, 95 points
1958 Rivesaltes from Chateau Croix. It has a very harmonious and pure bouquet with scents of soft rind, quince, Earl Grey and a touch of 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.
You can upgrade the 1958 wine gift box with attachments, one ring bottle, one corkscrew and one wine stopper.

Rivesaltes 1958 wine
Rivesaltes is an appellation for the historic sweet wines of eastern Roussillon in the deep south of France. The sweet vine doux natural 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, vines doux naturels are made by mutage, a process of stopping must fermenting while there is still a high level of natural sweetness.
