Romanée Saint Vivant, Domaine Hudelot-Noellat 2019

Tasting Notes

An expressive nose is comprised by notes of freshly sliced plum, red cherry, soy, hoisin and discreet hints of sandalwood. There is excellent power and intensity to the focused and beautifully textured, indeed even silky, medium weight flavors that deliver outstanding depth and persistence on the impeccably well-balanced and youthfully austere finish. This wonderfully refined effort is at once classy yet impressively punchy and is a wine that should also age effortlessly. A ripe yet still classically styled RSV.

The 2019 Romanée-Saint-Vivant Grand Cru is superb, wafting from the glass with aromas of plums, cassis, exotic spices, dark chocolate and rose petals, framed by a deft application of new oak. Full-bodied, sumptuous and enveloping, it's deep and concentrated, with lively acids, broad structural shoulders and a long, perfumed finish.

Imperial purple in touch with its blacker side. Glorious purple fruit too, this is very heady, just inside the tramlines, lots of positives, especially the fruit at the finish, but I would have preferred this to have been picked a little earlier. If you like the rich ripe style though this is a winner. Charles pointed out that there are days it tastes differently, with greater freshness than today, and that may well be valid.
