Critical Acclaim

VN97 Vinous Apr 2015

"Usually one of the more seductive, feminine wines in the range, the 2012 Romanée St.-Vivant is unusually powerful and structured. Huge, searing tannins and super-expressive, bright acidity both are a prominent today. The 2012 is going to need a number of years in bottle to approach the early part of what is likely to be a very long drinking window. A huge finish totally drenched with saline notes is breathtaking, if not especially typical of RSV. Needless to say, the 2012 is going to be a fascinating wine to follow over the next several decades." (97 pts.)

RP96 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 27th Feb 2015

"The 2012 Romanée St Vivant, incidentally served before Richebourg rather than afterwards unlike previous years, was picked on September 28 and 29 at 24 hectoliters per hectare. There is a wondrous, ethereal purity to this 2012, a little more sumptuous than I recall it from barrel, with kirsch and freshly picked strawberries. As it opens, it gains more and more sensuality. The palate is rounded, almost curvaceous in the mouth, clearly more concentrated than the 2011 with a sense of authority and purpose, a bit of daring-do on the long finish. It leaves a slightly ferrous residue on the aftertaste, completing what is a marvelous and sensual Grand Cru. 1,148 cases produced." (96 pts.)

France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.
