The 2015 Romanée Saint-Vivant Grand Cru has a very fragrant bouquet with small red cherries, crushed strawberry, crushed stone and a touch of rose petal--pure and utterly refined. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, tensile and full of energy, a pleasant marine influence developing towards the finish and lending complexity and personality. Very long, very sensual, very Romanée-Saint-Vivant. This is a brilliant follow-up to the fabulous 2014. (NM)P
(from a .48 ha parcel of vines). This is both more elegant but also more restrained with its mocha-infused red cherry, sandalwood and tea aromas on the floral scented nose. The lilting, silky and pure middle weight flavors possess a gorgeously refined mouthfeel as the supporting tannins are dense but notably fine-grained on the beautifully focused, balanced and lingering finish. This generously proportioned effort should be approachable young but age quite well too. 2032+
Full, bright red. Alluring aromas of black cherry, raspberry, cocoa powder, licorice and violet hint at the exotic side of the vintage. Wonderfully silky-sweet on the palate, but with its plush, seamless texture given shape by surprising harmonious acidity. This is deceptively accessible today owing to its sheer sucrosité and pliancy, and its utterly suave tannins, but the extremely long finish shows an exhilarating sappiness that suggests this wine will evolve slowly and gracefully in bottle.

Purplish crimson. Real savour to the nose of this. Lots of layers and impressive grip. Expensive but potentially rewarding. Zesty orange peel and ripe fruit with real bite. Most impressive. Great fan of flavours on the end. 18/20 points. (JR)
