Tasting notes of the 1946 wine, Score: 94 Neal Martin, vinous
The 1946 wine Rivesaltes does not quite deliver the same complexity as the 1949 on the nose: Manuka honey, brown spices, peat and orange zest. Unlike the 1949 aeration really benefits this Rivesaltes as it manifests greater harmony and precision. The palate is well balanced with marmalade, quince, dried honey and a liberal pinch of white pepper. This is very pure and caressing in the mouth, a little more saline than the 1949 with a persistent finish that lingers in the mouth. Wonderful. Tasted with Philippe Gayral. Drink 2018 - 2035
Domaine La Sobilane consists of 54 hectares of vineyards bordered by Garrigues, the area of this Rivesaltes, the grapes flourish in this Mediterranean weather.
