Not surprisingly, this is completely different from the Renardes with significantly more aromatic refinement that presents itself in the form of spicy and ultra-pure floral and black fruit aromas. The equally polished flavors seem crafted from nothing other than gossamer-like pure silk that dances across the palate before terminating in a sophisticated and perfectly balanced finish. This is not as complex as the Renardes but it is so much finer and with the very, very special quality of the underlying material, this is unquestionably destined for greatness. This matches up very favorably with the 2006 Leroy RSV and it's possible that it could even surpass it.
The 2009 Romanée-St-Vivant flows with layers of silky red berries, flowers and spices. It is totally sensual and inviting from start to finish. The tannins are barely perceptible given sweetness, perfume and sheer radiance of the fruit. This is dazzling juice. Anticipated maturity: 2019+. (AG) 96+
Starts out with smoky oak notes gracing the cherry aroma, which is fleeting and complex. On the palate, a mineral element underlines the intense black cherry and spice flavors, staying balanced, expressive, persistent and long in the aftertaste. Best from 2019 through 2036. (BS, Web Only-2015)
Not that much on nose except a serious intention. Bloody and nerve. Very very youthful. A bit of hazelnut on the nose. Energy and seriousness. This is grave grand cru stuff – takes itself very seriously. Very long and hidden. But great density. Finesse. Really great polish. Savoury. 18.5++/20 points.
