Wine Description

(2001 Vintage) Lovely, almost black colour. It shows an extraor- dinary texture which, on the nose, expresses power and delicacy at the same time. In the mouth, the wine is compact, deep and long, giv- ing the impression of a magnificent tapestry. The Romanée-St-Vivant 2001 is an exceptional wine, it stands out in the vintage.

    a bit closed on the nose, spicy, more dark fruits, hawthorn, layers of flavors but not as feminine as the 2004, very long finish,

    (1998 Vintage) "A beautifully spicy nose is finally beginning to open to reveal wonderfully complex and spicy aromatics and fruit that is still 100% primary. The medium full, rich, spicy and intense flavors possess ripe tannins underpinning the considerable but softening structural spine and it's clear that this will definitely require another 6 to 8 years in the cellar. Multiple, and consistent, notes."
