Rivesaltes, north of Pérpignan in the South West corner of the Languedoc is an Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée for naturally sweet, fortified wines (vin doux naturel) made in the Languedoc-Roussillon wine region of France. They are similar to Muscat de Rivesaltes AOC wines, except the grape varieties are not restricted to Muscat.
They are all Vins Doux Naturels, but both fortified by arresting fermentation and therefore technically not 'naturels'.
The colour of those wines are amber, tuilé and garnet.
The grape varieties used are :
- Amber Rivesaltes: white and grey Grenache, Macabeu, Malvoisie of Roussillon, Muscat Petits Grains and Muscat of Alexandria.
- Tuilé Rivesaltes: black Grenache and vines from Amber Rivesaltes but except Muscats.
- Garnet Rivesaltes: black Grenache.
