94 points Joe Czerwinski (Wine Advocate): "The 1958 Rivesaltes is an Ambré style, made from white varieties. It's more amber and mellow than the 1959 Tuilé, elegant and nutty, with complex notes of rancio and honeyed toffee and tremendous length. Drink: 2019-2030. (Apr 2019)"

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 Blanc. Aged for more than 5 decades in its original vat. This Rivesaltes has a very fruity nose with great intensity. The mouth is complex, full of delicacy and balance, with a great freshness on the finish. Alcohol 15.5%.
