Rivesaltes 1948 - CAZES

 

For a unique gift, we suggest our special reserve of Rivesaltes with exceptional aromatic qualities developed after several decades of maturing in barrels. This Vin Doux Naturel, with only 500 bottles per vintage from 1931 to 1962, will seduce lovers of rare wines.

Tasting : This Rivesaltes is marked by cinnamon and gingerbread aromas. The mouth is fruity and balanced, with a beautiful finish on honey and candied apricot.

Grape variety : 100% Grenache noir

Terroir : Clay and limestone with rolled pebbles from the foothills of the Corbières.

Vinification: Direct pressing. Fortification with neutral alcohol in liquid phase during alcoholic fermentation.

Ageing: This wine has been aged for nearly seven decades in its original cask.

ABV: 17.5% alc/vol

 

What is this kind of wine?

This bottle of Rivesaltes Cazes is not defined by its "red" or "white" colour, it is a natural sweet wine made from Grenache noir. It is called a "Vin Tranquille" (red or white). This wine is "mutated" when brandy is added at 90° during fermentation. This addition of alcohol stops the alcoholic fermentation and modifies the balance of the wine:

- The degree of alcohol is higher than in a still wine.

- The sweetness is higher, since by stopping the fermentation, the yeasts have not had time to finish their effort and have not transformed all the sugars present in the base wine into alcohol.

- Bottles of Rivesaltes are wines that can be kept for a very long time. The wine has remained in barrels for decades and has only recently been bottled; hence the perfect condition of the bottle.

I love this site. Whether it's for old wines, or recent ones. The choice of partner estates is impressive, and allocations are sold at fair prices. Ludovic's advice is always excellent.
