Maison Cazes, located in Rivesaltes, in the heart of the Roussillon region, between the Pyrenees Mountains and the Mediterranean Sea, was founded by Michel Cazes in 1895.
In 2017 Domaine Cazes celebrated the 20th anniversary of its conversion to biodynamics. Today the vineyards extend over 220 hectares, covering all of Roussillon’s different terroirs and giving birth to outstanding wines every year.
Rivesaltes Ambre is made using the “mutage” technique and aging in an oxidative environment in age-old foudres (very large vats). This leads to a naturally sweet wine that has an incredible aromatic complexity.
The nose is enriched by myriad aromas: smoky notes, toasted hazelnuts, dried apricots… On the palate, this complexity is enhanced by elegant fruit aromas (peach and candied pineapple) walnut and toffee.
