Description:

Domaine de la Romanee Conti Romanee St. Vivant 2010
Cote de Nuits
"All that I could think when I first put my nose in the glass was "wow!" as the airy and very cool nose of ultra-elegant spice, floral and herbal nuances greeted me. Add to this plenty of attractive nuances to the kaleidoscopically layered red currant and plum suffused aromas and you have something pretty special. This is, not surprisingly, much more refined than the Grands Ech as the supporting tannins on the silky middle weight flavors are extremely fine-grained yet notably dense as the explosive finish is quite firm. Despite the tightly wound structure the overall impression of the mouth feel is one of delicacy and ultimate refinement. This should be a particularly excellent vintage for what has become one of the stars of this gorgeously deep portfolio of wines." Burghound, 96 pts. 01/13
2 bottles
Estimate $3,500-4,250
