Romanée Saint Vivant, Domaine Arnoux / Arnoux-Lachaux 2005

Tasting Notes

Toasty oak notes and very ripe spicy black fruit aromas lead to lacy, indeed almost delicate middle weight flavors that are focused, supple, intense, ultra pure and transparent on the silky and stunningly long finish. This is finesse personified with the classic 'power without weight' character that burgheads so prize. A lovely and exceptionally classy wine and as great as the Suchots clearly is, this simply offers an extra dimension of depth and breadth. A stunner of a wine.
