In his article “A Look at How the Rivesaltes Region Produces Top-Tier Wine” in thedailymeal.com, Darren Paltrowitz interviews the Export Manager for Wines of Roussillon, Eric Aracil, about the Roussillon region, and the characteristics of its wine.
The journalist also tried the Rivesaltes Ambre from the 1985 Collection and gives a full description about this wine.
Excerpt from the article:
“The Rivesaltes – pronounced “reeve-salts” — wines from the Roussillon region are known to be elegant, naturally-sweet, fortified sweet wines. I had the pleasure of trying Rivesaltes Ambre from the 1985 Collection (although bottled in 2012), which is intended to go with foie gras, orange cake, or any pastry made with honey. This particular wine received a 89/100 from The Wine Advocate and two stars from Guide Hachette 2013. It is among six top-tier Rivesaltes wines available in time for Valentine’s Day, as ranging in price from $30 to $60.”
