The 1953 Rivesaltes from Domaine La Sobilane had quite a deep brownish color, less lucid than some of its peers (although this is probably because it was a cask sample). The nose is quite backward for a Rivesaltes with brown spices, orange rind and a touch of cooked meat. The palate is well balanced with a slight viscosity, well-judged acidity and a tang of lemongrass toward the finish, though not quite delivering the intensity or extravagance that I look for. It's not bad, but it needs more depth. Tasted June 2017.

Cask sample. Mainly Grenache Noir.
Blackish, greenish tawny. Very mature nose with the merest suggestion of oxidation and rancio. Very, very sweet and round. But tannins and over-concentration on the end.
