1950 Wine Rivesaltes Domaine La Sobilane, this fine 1950 wine is scored 93 points, a ideal 70th Birthday gift idea for a 70 year old wine
Neal Martin, Wine Advocate
The 1950 Rivesaltes wine, which came from cask barrel, had a more complex bouquet compared to the 1951 or 1952, with a light marine, seaweed influence that is very attractive. I admire the detail here, the focus. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity that counterbalances the lightly spiced honeyed fruit, segueing into a cohesive and harmonious finish offering brown spices, dried quince and a touch of barley sugar. This is a gorgeous Rivesaltes that is one of the best that I have tasted from Domaine La Sobilane. Drink 2017-2035.
The wine will carry high alcoholic level at 17% so the wine will last for well over for a 70 year old wine, the wine is packed in a wooden box
This 1950 wine is packed in a wooden box and you can upgrade the gift box with a leather PU wine box with a corkscrew, wine pourer, wine cutter and wine ring and you can order 1950 sixpence wine stopper
