Tasting for the 1949 wine

The 1949 Rivesaltes has a deeper colour than vintages from the 1950s and 1960s: a burnished amber core with flecks of greenness on the rim. It has a sublime bouquet with walnut, marmalade, espresso, almost peat-like scents that render the aromatics with real complexity. The palate is medium-bodied with tangy marmalade, orange rind, marjoram, and white pepper. An undercurrent of clove develops with time. I love the harmony and precision of this Rivesaltes – so refined and precise on the finish. Superb. Tasted with Philippe Gayral. 2018 - 2035, 94 Rate, Peal Martin

Rivesaltes, Domaine Prieure du Monastir del Camp vintage 1949 wine

One of the most extraordinary tastings recently has been of 1949 wine from  Rivesaltes Vin Doux Naturels from 2000 to 1933. These naturally sweet fortified wines from 16% to 17.5% abv, were unearthed by Montpellier based oenologue 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.
