Romanée St. Vivant 1990

Domaine de la Romanée-Conti

Côte de Nuits, Grand Cru

Level into the neck, bin-soiled and scuffed label

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
