Terrassous Rivesaltes Hors d'Age 6 6 year old
|Region||France, Languedoc-Roussillon, Rivesaltes|
Wine AdvocateThe NV Rivesaltes Ambré Hors d'Age 6 Ans has a vibrant, light amber/whiskey color to go with sweet notes of golden raisins, bitter orange, almond and subtle browned sugar. Made from 100% Grenache Blanc and aged six years in barrel, it's medium-bodied, silky, seamless and layered. It lacks complexity and is slightly straightforward with its sweetness, yet it's never cloying and is one sexy drink. Drink Date: 2015-2025.
Wine EnthusiastPleasant aromas of candied walnuts, rancio, dried apricot and vanilla-wood tones are upfront on the nose and carry through to the medium-bodied palate. The mouthfeel is plush yet not overdone, with ample acidity and well-integrated alcohol offering balance. The evolving finish first showcases the fruity richness, followed by notes of mushroom, roasted nuts and then woody spice.
