Reviews 95 points Wine Advocate "The Domaine de la Romanee-Conti 2015 Romanee-St-Vivant Grand Cru was showing superbly from bottle, bursting from the glass with a dramatic and expressive bouquet of rose petal, violet, raspberry and spicy red cherry that has already digested its framing of new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, expansive and supple, its frame of fine-grained tannins cloaked in a deep core of vibrant fruit and only asserting themselves on the long, penetrating finish. (WK)" 95 points Vinous "The 2015 Romanee-Saint-Vivant Grand Cru was picked at 26.26hl/ha on 9, 10 and 11 September. It has a much more delicate bouquet than the Richebourg at the moment, one that is playing its cards close to its chest. Light pressed flower aromas emerge entwined with redcurrant and cranberry. It is not a fragile bouquet however there is a sense of airiness about this wine. The palate is actually more open than the aromatics. It is some verisimilitude to Richebourg in terms of structure that only becomes apparent towards the second half. There is a spiciness embroidered into this Romanee-Saint-Vivant, a hidden depth whereas the Richebourg is more assertive and bold. Discreet for the vintage, it will repay several years in bottle. (NM)" 18 points Jancis Robinson "All the redcurrant and raspberry of Pinot Noir, with the finest, most tender tannic feel possible. Long and pencil-scented on the finish, with full body and a lovely elegant lift to the structure that is remarkably gentle yet full of flavour intensity. One of the more forceful styles of DRC, fitting the vintage profile well. (RH)" 96 points Burghound "This is more restrained still though aggressive swirling eventually coaxes the gorgeously broad-ranging nose to reveal an even more floral and spicier melange of red and dark currant, Asian-style tea, anise, clove, cinnamon and sandalwood scents. The equally pure, naturally sweet, precise and beautifully detailed medium-bodied flavors maintain their focus from the mid-palate to the dazzlingly long and palate staining linear finish that just goes on and on. However, as silky as the palate impression is, there is plenty of supporting structure and this too is going to require a long snooze in a cold cellar before it will be completely ready for prime time.
