DRC Domaine de la Romanee-Conti St. Vivant 2018 Rated 97DM
- 90+ Point Wines
Romanee-St-Vivant went through malolactic later than the other DRC Grands Crus and was a little more backward and reductive when I tasted it from barrel. Fermented with 90% whole clusters and aged in new wood, it's paler than its stablemates, with refined red berry fruits, focused, mineral-edged acidity and a racy, chalky finish. Transparent winemaking from a site that often produces the domaine's most elegant wine. Drinking Window: 2026-2038.
