DescriptionRomanee St. Vivant 1996
"A drop dead gorgeous aromatic profile of clove, anise, hoisin, soy and jasmin and plenty of now largely secondary fruit aromas lead to rich, full, sweet and dense medium full flavors that are supple but detailed on the mid-palate and ultra complex, intense and highly persistent finish. This is already a delicious wine yet there is still some modest future development to come - it should be capable of another 20 years of cellar time, perhaps more. Moreover, while the '96 RSV is not an especially dense wine by the impressive standards of Domaine Leroy, it is an exceptionally dense wine in the context of the vintage." (92pts Allen Meadows, Burghound, May 2010)
