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
(these vines yielded only about 25 hectoliters per hectare in 2015): Bright, dark red. Ripe, slightly high-toned aromas of raspberry, mocha and cocoa powder. Wonderfully sweet and penetrating, conveying a strong, sappy impression of dry extract and terrific depth and volume while maintaining a light touch. This impressively primary wine finishes with chewy, ripe tannins and slowly mounting, mouth-staining persistence. Van Canneyt compares this terroir to his Suchots, noting that the two vineyards feature the same plant material. (ST)
(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+
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)
