The terroir of this Rivesaltes rests on clay-limestone soil with variations of brown and black shale. The vines flourish in this Mediterranean climate, in warm and dry summers as well as in gentle winters. Like all Rivesaltes, this benefits from aging called "oxidative" which involves letting the wine breathe for considerable time to modify the aromas. The fermentation is stopped artificially by adding neutral alcohol to the grape juice...so many of the sugars stop being transformed into alcohol, giving the wine its sweetness.

Rivesaltes La Sobilane (Domaine) serve at a temperature of 14°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Canard Apicius version 2010, Moelleux au chocolat, Clafoutis aux figues et aux épices.
