1932 Domaine Cazes Vdn Rivesaltes Old Collection Ambre (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1259917 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The creme of the lineup, the 1932 VDN Rivesaltes Old Collection Ambre (100% Grenache Blanc aged 30 years in cask) is a monumental effort that makes your eyes roll back in your head and has you wondering why you don’t drink more of these. A borderline perfect dessert wine, it thrills on all accounts with fabulous aromas and flavors (toffee, cigar, cedar, sweet spice), full-bodied depth and richness, and yet no weight or heaviness whatsoever. It has serious acidity (and sugar) if you hunt for it, but everything is perfectly balanced, and it hangs on the palate until you either take another sip or do something to physically remove it. Find it if you can. I had a fantastic, larger tasting with Lionel Lavail of Domaine Cazes, who is the director of all of the estate properties. We went through a number of the Domaine Cazes properties, and finished with an incredible lineup of older Rivesaltes. With regards to the dry reds and whites, they offer an impressive lineup, and excel at the value price points. The sweet wines were some of the most memorable of my trip through the region. We finished the tasting with two aged Muscats, both of which were bottled young and then aged in bottle. (JD)  (4/2014)

- 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.
