Description

    Romanee St. Vivant 1990
    Domaine de la Romanee Conti
    1lbsl, 2bsl, 2ssos, 1spc
    Bottle (11)
    "Extremely rich and ripe with explosive aromas of Vosne spice, earth and only a touch of secondary nuance followed by big, indeed even robust flavors that show good muscle but no rusticity and while this displays only a bit of the classic RSV velvet, this character will undoubtedly become more pronounced with age as there is plenty of mid-palate density. Quite long and still very much of a baby, the '90 RSV is most promising. I would try again in 2010 but this will live for 30 years, perhaps longer." (92pts Allen Meadows, Burghound, Sept 2008)
