94 points David Schildknecht (Wine Advocate): "Deeper and darker in color than the 1957 Rivesaltes, the 1947 Rivesaltes is another seamless, elegant, lightly textured release from Domaine Cazes that offers sensational notes of caramel, toasted nuts, white raisins and toffee bar, with a touch of rancio character coming through with time in the glass. Like everything from this estate, it’s impeccably balanced, pure and just impossible to resist. (Apr 2017)"

Domaine Cazes, founded in 1895, is one of the oldest and most famous producers of Rivesaltes wines from the eponymously named Rivesaltes AOC in Roussillon. Rivesaltes, officially a "vin doux naturel," is in fact a fortified dessert wine that can be made from any combination of Grenache Blanc, Noir, and Gris, Macabéo, and to a much lesser extent Torbato (here called Malvoisie du Roussillon), as well as Muscat. Rivesaltes may taste of raisins, coffee, chocolate, fruits, or nuts and the most concentrated can, like Banyuls, be some of the few wines that happily partner with chocolate. John Gilman writes that "Domaine Cazes is one of the greatest producers of sweet wines that I have ever had the pleasure to come across...these are utterly distinct and unique wines of brilliant complexity and character, and though they may not be as well known in the wine world at large as their superb quality deserves, they are truly some of the wine world's greatest treasures."

This selection comes directly from the domaine in June 2021. 100% Grenache Noir. It was aged for almost 7 decades in its original vat. This Rivesaltes has an oaky and spicy nose, a rich and fresh palate, with smooth tannins and a nice cocoa finish. Alcohol 16%.
