Domaine de la Romanée-Conti St.Vivant Grand Cru
Cote de Nuits
Wine Advocate Review: 93-95 points
"The 2014 Romanée-Saint-Vivant Grand Cru has a nose that is so seductive that even at this juncture you feel the urge to run off and elope hand in hand. Very pure, very charming, wonderful effervescent red cherry and wild strawberry scents intertwined with thrilling mineralité. The palate is perhaps a little behind that Grands Echézeaux in terms of assimilating the oak, since there is a patina of wood towards the finish, but there is real density here as it fans out with a quite splendid peacock's tail."
Vinous Review: 92-95 points
"Good dark red. Captivating subtle perfume of raspberry, dried flowers and earthy underbrush; subdued but pure. Then dense and sappy in the mouth, conveying a penetrating, urgent quality to its intense flavors of crushed raspberry and earth. This RSV possesses the roundness and silky texture of the best 2014s, as well as almost liqueur-like ripeness, but the wine's superb energy gives it terrific inner-mouth lift. Finishes with broad, serious tannins and outstanding persistence."
From the Winery:
"Romanée-Saint-Vivant is flirtatious : one cannot help loving it. Behind this grace resides a strength in such perfect balance that, at first, it was imperceptible."
