    Description

    Romanee St. Vivant 1997
    Leroy
    #825, 831, 897
    Bottle (3)
    "Wonderfully interesting nutty notes on the nose, very light and fresh with real vivacity. Not the concentrated monster one associates with Leroy's early vintages! Lovely and very fresh. Great delicate balance. Lovely now. Decidedly pretty - the sort of wine you never find outside Burgundy. This was the group's third favourite red burgundy." (18.5pts JR, Nov 2010)

    " (with thanks to Dr. Michael Chen). A beautifully spiced and ripe mix of now mostly secondary black fruit aromas gives way to rich, full and naturally sweet medium weight flavors that are blessed with ample amounts of dry extract that confer a velvety mouth feel onto the palate coating and gorgeously long finish. For my taste, this elegant and refined effort has just reached the front end of its peak drinkability though depending on your preferences, it could easily be held for another 10 to 15 years. In a word, terrific." (93 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound, Apr. 2011)
