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.

Rivesaltes is an appellation for the historic sweet wines of eastern Roussillon in the deep south of France. The sweet vin doux naturel wines produced in this area have been revered since at least the 14th Century. The technique used to make them is one of several employed for sweet wines. Unlike botrytized wines or ice wines, vins doux naturels are made by mutage, a process of stopping must fermenting while there is still a high level of natural sweetness.
