The Story

Romanée-Conti lies on brown limestone soils 60 cm deep with a major clay component. Romanée-Saint-Vivant has similar but deeper (90 cm) soils.

Written Notes

Garnet red colour with brick red hue. Expressive nose with distinct oak spices, toasting aroma, discreet fruit in the background, demanding a lot of time to open up. On the palate powerful with fine aromatic herbs, ripe fruit, excellent structure and length. Another typical 2010 where the oak is slightly more upfront than the fruit. However it is just a question of time till the balance between oak and fruit will be perfectly established. Overall this wine turns out to be a bit more elegant than the 2010 Richebourg.

1994 Domaine de la Romanee-Conti Romanee-St.Vivant Grand Cru Still young but a touch of maturity on the rim. Nose, very good depth. Beautiful classic nose. Earthy. Palate; Glorious, great depth, weight and fullness. Needs age.
