The 1978 VDN Rivesaltes Aime Cazes is comprised of 80% Grenache Blanc and Grenache Gris, and 20% black Grenache, that spent 22 years in cask. Sporting a fabulous light gold color, it burst from the glass with notions of dried plums, fig, toffee and creme brulee. Full-bodied, seamless and incredibly layered and silky, with vibrant acidity keeping it light and downright gulpable, it’s a brilliant Rivesaltes that will probably age forever. ||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. www.cazes-rivesaltes.com; eRobertParker.com.April, 2014
