Rendered entirely from Grenache Blanc, the 2013-bottled Cazes 1999 Rivesaltes Ambre offers a riveting nose of candied lemon rind, glazed pineapple, brown sugar, pork rind, toasted pecan, floral extracts, wood smoke, and ocean breeze. Incisively zest and citric, piquantly nutty, briny and alkaline on its expansive and lusciously-viscous palate, this supplies ample counterpoint to its undeniable sweetness, even as flavors of nougat, caramel, and honey emerge to prominence. There are nectarous purity and polish here as well as formidable complexity.

Wine maker notes
Vinification: The grapes are harvested immediately they arrive at the winery. After racking, the alcoholic fermentation is temperature controlled at 18 and stopped during its liquid phase by adding neutral alcohol in mid-fermentation. The alcohol level is 15% alc/vol, and residual sugar content 110g/litre. Maturing: The wine is matured for seven years in old oak tuns to ensure correct oxidisation, after which it is bottled and stocked in air conditioned cellars.
