Rich, tawny Port like, strong honey tones. Absolutely divine! — 4 months ago


Rivesaltes Ambré Hors d'Âge 12 Ans Vin Doux Naturel Grenache Blend

NOSE: sherry and brandy-like. Distinct raisin, caramel. Orange (candied), lozenge, varnish, vanilla, baking spices (cinnamon, clove, etc), Rum-like marshmallow. Irish (pot still) whiskey. Laffy taffy.

TASTE: More acidity than expected, over the top raisin. Sulphur (not in a bad way, in a raisin way). Chilled apple cinnamon hibiscus tea with sugar and orange juice. Not my style - but it is made well. 90.

EDIT: someone mentioned roasted nuts and they are right.

1983. Thank you so much, Matt for pouring this delicious wine to finish our meal! The caramel sweetness and acidity made it a perfect pairing with the dark chocolate mole truffle on the petit fours plate. — 3 months ago
