Un Rivesaltes de 39 ans (de vieillissement en fûts), élégant, complexe, très long, intense… Allez-y les yeux fermés !
Like all the around 30 year old vintage dated Rivesaltes from this source, this bottle is superb showing light pink colour with an amber streak, ethereal bouquet, medium- body, linear shape on the palate showing a complex medley of rasperberry tinged fruit with overtones of nuts and raisins and a gently rich and burnished backbone. It was gastroncally versatile with the Stilton bringing out richness and the desserts juicy acidity. Even better and deeper three days after opening. Excellent.
