I plan on opening up a bottle tonight of 1961 Domaine Singla Rivesaltes Ambre Heritage du Temps. Don't remember exactly where I picked it, probably Garagiste.  It is a white Roussillon, amber with age, and a noticeable amount of sediment. I'll post tasting notes some time later.

not that particular producer but i've had many rivesatles through the years.  If these were port, they'd most likely be colheitas.  aged in barrel for a while, then bottled recently.

I do much prefer my ports though, feeling they offer a touch more complexity than the more striaght forward caramel/acidity/wood notes from wines in this region.

if you do like the profile, try looking out for some Banyull's aoc, which I feel have stronger producers and much tighter quality control.

Maury wines are also good in such cases.
