Tasting Notes for the 1969 wine

Engine oil, treacle, prune. It has all the knowledge and compression of fossil fuel. Tastes neat, like it should be diluted before consumption, almost. Score: 19 Richard Hemming MW, JancisRobinson.com, September 2018

The 1969 wine Rivesaltes has a deep amber colour. It has a captivating bouquet with Seville orange marmalade, quince, furniture polish and just a touch of copper piping. The palate is medium-bodied with lovely marmalade, quince, fig and prune notes, exactly the right amount of dryness/sweetness with a long spicy aftertaste of Chinese 5-spice and cardamom. This sports the most madeirisation of the Rivesaltes tasted from Riveyrac, but it works supremely well. Tasted with Philippe Gayral. 2018 - 2030
