Recently bottled from cask, this Rivesaltes is in pristine condition and is certainly amongst the best condition 1972 vintage wines available. Slightly fortified, it is drinking extremely well.
AboutAs well as being the 'appellation' of this wine, Rivesaltes is a town in Perpignan, close to the Pyrenees and less than 30 miles from the Spanish border. Indeed, it is so close to Spanish Catalonia, that the name is derived from Catalan and means 'High Shores'.
Because of their high sugar content, these sweet wines from Rivesaltes age extremely well. Vintage wines like this also drink superbly and for fans of dessert wines, there is no equal. As a birthday or anniversary present, or simply a great wine to enjoy with friends, Domaine de la Fosseille 1972 comes very highly recommended.
