Prieure Du Monastir Del Camp Rivesaltes 1966 (750ML)
Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
In the South of France, there is a long tradition of producing fortified wines, particularly in the appellations of Maury, Rivesaltes and Banyuls. The producers of these vins doux naturels often kept the best vintages for blending in with the weaker ones. Undisturbed in 500-liter casks for decades, these wines were only recently bottled at the estates.
Ready to drink now, these rarities offer an ideal opportunity to enjoy some of the most legendary vintages at very attractive prices.
“…a blend of 50% Grenache Noir and the remainder white grapes – Grenache Gris, Grenache Blanc, Macabeu and Tourbat…it has a light smoke, raisin and a touch of dried dates. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins. It is lighter, harmonious and balanced with a straight-laced, linear finish that is precise…” — Neal Martin, Wine Advocate
