    Description

    Romanee St. Vivant 1996
    R. Arnoux
    Magnum (1)


    "Deeply pitched aromas of menthol, spice, sandalwood and ripe black pinot fruit leads to silky, rich, deep flavors blessed with outstanding length if not necessarily great elegance. While this is no heavyweight, it offers much to like with delicious flavors and a chewy finish that goes on and on. Note: that another bottle tasted several years ago displayed better purity and transparency." (91 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound #18, Apr. 2005)

    "Drop dead gorgeous nose of spice, sandalwood and ripe black pinot fruit with intense, silky flavors of mind-boggling complexity and killer length. While this is no heavy weight, it is seductive as hell and should drink well for years to come." (93 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound #4, Oct. 2001)
