Amber color with coppery tints.
The complex bouquet offers aromas of cocoa, dried fruits, coffee, and caramel.
Aromatic on the palate, revealing notes of dried fig, honey, walnuts, caramel, and beeswax. The finish is very long-lasting and smooth, with a delicious hint of caramel.

Serve with Roquefort, chocolate, or walnut cake.

Description

The white varieties are vinified by fermenting the must after pressing, in its liquid phase; for the red varieties, the must is macerated in contact with the skins. Fortification halts the action of the yeast before it has converted all the sugar into alcohol. This is how Rivesaltes wines retain part of the natural sweetness contained in the fruit. The wines are matured in wooden casks which they can carry on maturing gently for over fifty years.
