The 1980 wine Rivesaltes
Riveyrac wine has a slight adhesive note on the nose that detracts from the precision and fruit expression. The palate is nicely balanced with a viscous opening, notes of orange zest, dried honey, toffee and touches of clove, although like the 1982 I would like a little more depth on the finish.
