This Rivesaltes is a blend of 50% Grenache Noir and the remainder white grapes – Grenache Gris, Grenache Blanc, Macabeu and Tourbat. Deep garnet in hue with a thin tawny rim, it has an elegant bouquet of sloe, mulberry, wilted rose petals and Indian ink. It is nicely defined and grows in intensity. The palate is medium-bodied with spices, white pepper, dried orange peel and then later cardamom and Indian spices. Hints of ginger and bitter orange, and a twist of sourness on the finish lend it edge. This is very fine. Tasted December 2012.
