TASTING NOTES

This Rivesaltes hors d’âge offers a bright, clear amber hue with light golden reflections. The nose is remarkably complex with delicate notes of candied orange peel, dried fruits, almond and honey. The palate is well-balanced, powerful and bursting with aromas of walnuts and dried figs. This is a very smooth wine with delicate tannins and exceptional length.
