Romanée St Vivant, Domaine Hudelot-Noellat 2015
The 2015 Romanée Saint-Vivant Grand Cru from Domaine Hudelot-Noëllat is exceptional, bursting from the glass with notes of cherries, wild berries, exotic spice, dried flowers and orange rind. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, concentrated and authoritative, built around a bright line of acidity and a fine-grained chassis of satiny tannins. The finish is long, fragrant and racy.

This is both more elegant but also more restrained with its cool red cherry, sandalwood, tea and various floral scents. The lilting, silky and pure middle weight flavors possess a gorgeously refined mouth feel as the supporting tannins are dense but notably fine-grained on the beautifully focused, balanced and lingering finish. This will be approachable young but age quite well too.
