A supremely elegant combination of very discreet wood and natural spice together with very fresh red berry and plum aromas complements to perfection the rich yet incredibly fine middle weight flavors that are wonderfully seductive, complex and hugely long. This is textbook RSV as it is a wine of grace and finesse. This concentrated yet refined effort should also be a stunner in time.Drink: 2021+
Romanée-St-Vivant, which takes its name from the monastery of St-Vivant founded in c. 900, is a Grand Cru vineyard in Vosne-Romanée on the Côte de Nuits in Burgundy. It is the largest of Vosne-Romanée's six Grands Crus and produces red wine only. The vineyard is located on the slope tothe north of the town of Vosne-Romanée and is the nearest vineyard to this village. Romanée-Saint-Vivant's soils are deep and rich in clay and lime, which means the wines of Romanée-St-Vivant are usually lighter and less powerful than its neighbours'. Domaine de la Romanée Conti is the largest proprietor, owning over half of the area's 9.5 ha.
