Description

Romanée St. Vivant 2005 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti
Côte de Nuits, Grand Cru
Slightly scuffed label

A beautiful scented bouquet. I have never seen such breed on a RSV. Chocolate and blackberries on the palate. Tremendous, vibrant fruit with excellent minerally tannins. At 4 years old, from magnum, it has a very dark colour and a fabulous clean, rich, undergrowth nose. Vanilla, candied violets, tree bark and strawberries. Extreme health. A real tannic structure on the palate. Very powerful, dense and forceful. Massive in its fruit and tannin, with the acidity perfectly integrated. A giant of a vintage and an obvious long-term keeper. Has that 'sweet' finish of marvellous, not 'over-the-top', ripeness. Cassis at the end. Later, serene and complex and a divine, multi-dimensional aftertaste. Serena Sutcliffe, MW WA (96-97)
