Winemaker's Notes

Of all the other Grand Crus of Vosne, Romanée Saint-Vivant is probably the most harmonious and elegant. The aromas, when young, are very fruity: black cherry, raspberry jelly and blackberry dominate. Later, the bouquet becomes very intense, and it is not unusual to discern haunting aromas of wet earth, truffles, moss or game. With time, the wine develops more concentrated aromas and flavours typical of the great red wines of Burgundy. On the palate, the wines are characterized by a silky richness, which is in total harmony with the delicate tannins and acidity. Finesse and breed are the final impressions of this extraordinary wine. In some vintages, it is possible to fully enjoy Romanée Saint-Vivant after 6 or 7 years of ageing. More than often though, fifteen years are truly necessary to appreciate this Burgundy miracle in all its majesty.
