The 1954 Rivesaltes has a slightly lighter color than the 1955 and I find that the nose is a little more diffuse and volatile. The palate is medium-bodied with honey, ginger and marjoram on the entry. There is not huge depth here and if anything, it feels as if it would benefit from further aging. I just find this is missing the fireworks of other vintages.
Bottled 2013. Pale orange. A tiny bit sweaty on the nose but with lots of rancio and dried peel – and lift. Great stuff and transparent. Sweet and yet well balanced.
