92 points Jeb Dunnuck (Wine Advocate): "The vibrant amber colored 1957 Rivesaltes is a pretty, Sherry-like dessert wine that offers outstanding notes of baking spices, caramel, toasted nuts and toffee. Medium to full-bodied, incredibly elegant and seamless, it has a light, gracefully style on the palate and is downright classy. Like all of these older Rivesaltes, they drink beautifully right on release, yet will keep as long as you'd like to hold onto bottles. (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.
