1,600 - 2,200 GBP
Romanée St. Vivant 2009
Domaine de la Romanée-Conti
Côte de Nuits, Grand Cru
Excellent level, label very lightly soiled
Harvested after Richebourg, Romanée Conti and La Tâche. Transcendent perfume. Great, huge body and enormous precision and definition. Very rich super-structure. So much natural glycerol that the tannins are completely enveloped in sweetness. Another 2012 bottle had a gorgeous perfume and many-layered succulence on the palate, richly textured and complex. Glorious definition, freshness and glycerol. Great elegance and a great future. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
