Tasting notes
The 2013 Romanée-Saint-Vivant Grand Cru, which is raised in 50% new oak, has an introspective bouquet at first, but allowing the wine a couple of minutes to open, it reveals intense red cherries, kirsch, strawberry and mineral scents that convey the femininity of the vineyard. The palate is medium-bodied with layers of minerally red fruit, superb acidity and a showstopping peacock?s tail of flavors on the finish: strawberry, raspberry, white pepper, mineral and truffle. Wow. I cannot wait to see how this turns out in bottle.
