Vinous (Neil Martin) 95 points! "The 1960 Rivesaltes has a deep burnished amber colour. It has an attractive bouquet of walnut, marmalade, nutmeg and light smoky aromas that perhaps would benefit from a little more definition. The palate is well balanced with tangy marmalade, dried honey, molasses, orange rind and a touch of Chinese 5-spice. I love the palate probably more than the aromatics, but at least there is commendable freshness on the finish that beckons you back for another sip. Tasted with Philippe Gayral."
Jancis Robinson (Richard Hemming) 19.5 "Incredible piquant spices – mace, pepper, chilli powder. Long, dense, intense – not just complex, but complicated and challenging. Rancio, honey, black tea. A snapshot of a different world. (RH) (Drink starting 2018)"
