Domain: Casenobe Casenoble is one of Rivesaltes' reliable classics. Produced mainly from Grenache Noir, Rivesaltes wine is referred to as a muté (fortified) wine, in which alcoholic fermentation is "stunned" by the addition of grape spirit. The result is that a portion of the sugar contained in the grape must is not converted to alcohol, giving the wine its deliciously sweet taste. Rivesaltes wines are unlike any other: truly contemplative wines which can be kept for decades, or even centuries. Casenoble produces this superb Rivesaltes from very old vines (more than 50 years).
