1933 Chateau Mosse Rivesaltes Vin Doux Naturel

SKU #1257454 Jancis Robinson

 Pale orange. Much paler than most. But still mainly Grenache Noir with perhaps more Macabeu than others. Lots of rancio on the nose. Very pungent but still fruity. Very sweet and dried peel-like. Reminds me of something Italian/Sicilian. Very sweet - sweeter than most of these. Nuts and dried peel and with a really intense core. Salted almonds plus sugar. 18.5/20 Score (JR)  (2/2014)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 1933 Rivesaltes is made from 60-65% Grenache Noir with the remainder Macabeu and Grenache Blanc. It has a lucid tawny color. The nose has a touch of furniture polish and quince, a little like a Fino sherry, while the palate is better, with candied orange peel and cough candy. It finishes with style, although it makes you want a little more on the nose. This is cut from a similar cloth as the 1931 that I tasted last year. It is a very good Rivesaltes...Drink now.

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
