Tasting notes

The 2015 Romanée-Saint-Vivant Grand Cru also includes 100% whole bunch fruit. I left this 4-5 minutes to really open up. The whole bunch works very well because you cannot detect the stem addition. It is very precise with crystalline red cherry, wild strawberry and limestone, gaining intensity with practically every swirl of the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a keen line of acidity, fresh and vibrant with a touch of spice towards the finish. It is an understated and linear Romanée-Saint-Vivant, very sophisticated and deserving of several years in bottle. Sublime.
