DRC Domaine de la Romanee-Conti St. Vivant 2019 Rated 98DM
- 90+ Point Wines
The Romanee-Saint-Vivant was shown after the Richebourg, which was not always the case. The domaine farms 5.29 hectares here, the former holding of the Marey-Monge family that they had leased since 1966. Since its purchase in 1988, it has been partly replanted, but only the old vine fruit is used here. The wine has a darker, plummy fruit character as compared to the Richebourg and a grippy, substantial feel with more tannic strength and an impressively lingering finish. It seems if anything to have gained in substance and depth since tasted in barrel. Drinking Window: 2025-2065.
