Professional Wine Reviews for Domaine Lafage Rivesaltes Ambre NV

Rated 91 by Robert Parker
Representing a roughly ten year solera of fortified Grenache, the Lafage non-vintage Rivesaltes Ambre is a prime example of how lovely (and versatile) this genre can be in the right hands. Creme caramel, coffee, candied orange peel, and subtle smokiness mark the nose and creamy palate. The bitter and pungent aspects of orange zest along with subtly oxidative toasted nuts, and hauntingly persistent smokiness offset and compliment what is already very restrained and well-integrated sweetness. The finish manages both to penetrate (thanks to the wine’s volatile elements) and caress (thanks to its creaminess). One could hold on to this...

Additional Information on Domaine Lafage Rivesaltes Ambre NV

Winery: Domaine Lafage

Region: Languedoc Roussillon

The southern French region of Languedoc Roussillon is one of the most important wine regions on earth, being responsible for over a third of France's annual output – a vast quantity of wine which exceeds even the annual output of the United States. Despite the fact that Languedoc Roussillon produces such enormous quantities of wine, the quality of the region's output remains a priority for the wineries which operate there. Languedoc Roussillon takes great pride in the fact that could be considered one of the oldest wine regions in the world, with a history which stretches back thousands of years to the ancient Greeks, and remains highly important to this day. Vintners in Languedoc Roussillon work with a wide range of grape varietals, and the region produces a wide variety of wines, from still red and white table wines, to blended and aged wines, dessert and sparkling wines.

Country: France

France is renowned across the globe for its quality wines and the careful expertise which goes into making them, but what is truly remarkable about this relatively small country is the vast range of wines it produces in such huge amounts each year. Not only are the finest red wines in the world said to come from the beautiful regions of Bordeaux and Burgundy, but elsewhere in the country we find the Champagne region, and areas such as the Rhone Valley and the Loire, whose white wines consistently receive awards and accolades by the plenty. This range is a result of the great variety of climatic conditions and terrain found in France, coupled with generations of wine makers working within single appellations. Their knowledge of specific terroirs and grape varieties has, over time, perfected the production of wines within their region, and the end results continue to impress the world to this day.
