Vineyard
The Rivesaltes appellation takes its name from the town of Rivesaltes, which in
Catalan means "High Banks". The plots are situated in Salses next to Rivesaltes, in the
Roussillon region, in a soil mainly composed of granitic and gneissic sands, brown or
black schists and occasionally of red limestone soils.
Winemaking
Harvest took place by hand when the grapes had reached optium maturity.
Destemming and crushing was followed by a short maceration period of around
three to five days. Fortification stopped the fermentation and retained some of the
wines natural sweetness. The wine was left to age for two years in barrel, followed by
another 15 years in large oak cask.
Tasting Note
A fine and complex nose showing aromas of dried fruits, walnuts, currants, honey
and a hint of spice. Powerful and rich, with notes of bitter oranges and wild apricots
on the palate. An astonishing wine with an exceptional length and a praline aromas
finish.
Serving Suggestion
A wonderful accompaniment to cured ham with melon, blue cheese or foie gras.
