Rivesaltes Ambre 1997, Domaine Cazes, Roussillon, France

Rivesaltes Ambre 1997, Domaine Cazes, Roussillon, France

RRP: £15.49
Bottle Price: £14.99

Domaine Cazes is situated in Rivesaltes in the Roussillon. With 220 hectares of vines planted, Domaine Cazes is the largest certified Organic and Biodynamic estate in France.

Based on their view that the natural environment needs natural preparation, they plough the soils and use only natural ingredients as treatments, arranging their work according to the lunar calendar.

The fresh 1997 Rivesaltes Ambre has a deep, attractive amber colour. There are vibrant dried fig, apricot and grape aromas on the nose, with a fig and citrus peel complexity on the palate. The wine is smooth and mellow, with a lingering hint of caramel adding to the rich finish.

Sweet but definitely not cloying, Ambre is medium to full in body. Ready to drink immediately, it will also keep almost indefinitely. To appreciate it at its best, serve it at 13°C. It is delicious with desserts based on nuts, almonds, toasted hazelnuts or caramel. It was the perfect partner to a hazelnut and chocolate dacquoise.
