    Romanee St. Vivant 2016
    Bottle (3)

    "Here there is no reductive funk as the nose offers up notably spicy aromas of black cherry, cassis, Asian-style tea and a whiff of herbal tea. I very much like the intensity of the sleek middle weight flavors that are more muscular than they usually are while delivering excellent length on the backward finish. This is also more structured than it usually is, indeed it's borderline chewy, and is going to require extended keeping if you wish to see it at its peak." (95 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound #73, Jan. 2019)

    "I had not tasted the 2016 Romanée-Saint-Vivant Grand Cru since it was in barrel, and it is showing brilliantly, unfurling in the glass with notes of cassis, wild berries, espresso roast, dark chocolate, exotic spices, rose petals and violets. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, layered and multidimensional, with refined tannins, a lively spine of acidity and striking depth and dimension. This is a magical Romanée-Saint-Vivant that matches or surpasses the 2015 rendition." (96 pts. William Kelley, Wine Advocate, Jan. 2020)
