Rivesaltes Rancio Puig-Parahy 1993

External Review by Astor Wines & Spirits:

A Vin Doux Naturel made in the "Rancio" style. The wine gives aromas of brandy-macerated plums with dense sweetness on the palate and already some oxidative, nutty notes on the finish.

The nose on this bottle of Rivesaltes gives a complex array of dried fruit flavors from candied orange zest to stewed plum.The palate is dense and concentrated with lots of alcohol and brandy flavor, the finish, nutty and extremely long.

This is an incredibly concetrated wine that has turned mahogany with age.

Notes of Rum, dried grapes, and cocoa give way to a dense and concentrated palate.

The intentionally oxidative "Rancio" style dessert wine gives earthy tobacco notes as well as fig and plum jam. A luscious treat.

Morello cherry notes prevail here along with definite hints of brandy. A perfect after dinner sipper from a family who has been making Rivesaltes in the Rousillon since the 15th Century!
