Tasting Notes

Like the Romanée Saint-Vivant, this was initially badly reduced, indeed to the point that it was unpleasant. I once again left the bottle exposed to air for 24 hours and unlike the Romanée Saint-Vivant, it actually largely, if not completely cleaned up to where the reduction was more of a nuance rather than dominating the ripe dark currant, earth and floral-suffused nose. There is good vibrancy to the medium weight and mineral-inflected flavors that possess good muscle and intensity on the dusty, mildly warm and youthfully austere finale where a touch of bitter pit fruit character shows up. This isn't a great example of the appellation but it is not without appeal.
