Domaine de la Romanee Conti Romanee St. Vivant 2004
Cote de Nuits

"This is much more in the style of the Echézeaux with its exuberantly expressive and luxurious black fruit nose nuanced by a huge range of spices including anise, clove and cinnamon with notes of tea and hoisin as well. The moderately full flavors are sappy, rich and sweet with ample volume and a palate drenching finish that benefits from an underlying sense of vibrancy. There is real energy here, which seems to collect and focus the flavors. Terrific stuff and exceptionally long and the only aspect that prevents this from catching the Richebourg is that it doesn't quite have the same degree of phenolic ripeness."
