Description

Romanée St. Vivant 1990 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti
Côte de Nuits, Grand Cru
u. 1x3cm, wine comes from 2 different importers, slightly scuffed and stained labels, 2 of which nicked, scuffed and wrinkled capsules, slightly sunken corks, excellent color and clarity

At 19 years old from magnum, a wonderfully suave, smooth, well-bred nose. Total liqueur and coffee bean taste. One feels alcohol and ripeness. Rich cherries drenched in cassis. Immensely silky texture. A finish resembling eating blackcurrants. Now mature and ready. Sweet violets at the end, with a bit of tawny fruit and peat too. Ah, the complexity of great, mature Burgundy! In 2013, lots of breed and intensity. Serena Sutcliffe, MW WA 92
