RATINGS

97The Wine Advocate

The 2009 Romanee St.Vivant is wonderfully complete. The combination of power and elegance is breathtaking...Hard candy, flowers, mint and dark red berries... dramatic, explosive finish....a wine of considerable volume and textural depth

96Wine Spectator

Incisive and reserved on the nose, this red gives an immediate sense of its firm structure, which supports pure cherry, strawberry spice and mineral flavors. Ends with excellent length.

96Burghound.com

...detailed and ultra-refined flavors are crystalline in their purity and while they don't have the robust power of the Grands Echézeaux, there is notably more finesse and even a bit more overall length on the mildly austere finish...

95Stephen Tanzer

..Sexy perfume of plum, flowers, truffle and game. Wonderfully rich and sweet but with real verve to the flavors of red berries, minerals and wet earth. The highly aromatic, rising finish shows captivating soil complexity and energy...

18.5Jancis Robinson

Very rich and complete on the nose with great layers. Quite firm and ambitious on the palate... with lots of really energetic fruit in the middle. Very firm and convincing for the long term. Great elegance as well as density. Very noble...

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir, Grand Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
