1967 wine Rivesaltes from Prieure du Monastir del Camp The quality Rivesaltes 1967 wine is a great birthday gift. The wine will carry high alcoholic level at 17% so the wine will last for well over 50 years, Wine Advocate score 94 points.
The 1967 Rivesaltes wine has a refined bouquet with marmalade, espresso, toffee and quince that is well-defined and very focused. There is real energy encapsulated within these aromatics. The palate is medium-bodied with a viscous entry that is counterbalanced by its racy acidity and a real fieriness in its heart. This has a real edginess to it - a great Rivesaltes.

One of the most extraordinary tastings recently has been of 19 Rivesaltes Vin Doux Naturels from 2000 to 1933. These naturally sweet fortified wines from 16% to 17.5% abv, were unearthed by Montpellier based oenologue Philippe Gayral. They are still in cask, to be bottled under his brand L'Archiviste. In 1950, 60 million litres of Rivesaltes VDN were drunk in France; today just 1 million. Soon they will cease to exist. One or two bottles are a must for every cellar.
