2011 Romanee-Saint-Vivant Grand Cru
Louis Latour's Romanee-Saint-Vivant vineyard stretches over 0.8 hectares (1.97 acres). The 2011 Romanee-Saint-Vivant Grand Cru Les Quatre Journaux boasts beautiful persistent aromas and gorgeous ruby-tinted, garnet colour. The powerful and complex nose exudes cassis, currant, and peppermint. The palate reveals vibrant and silky texture with intense red fruits blending perfectly with the tannins. Superb elegance and length; a must!
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The Romanée-Saint-Vivant Les Quatre Journaux 2011 has an intriguing bouquet: black cherry fruit, blueberry, touches of licorice and aniseed just hovering off-stage not knowing whether to come on or not. Time will tell. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe, succulent tannins that lend this real corpulence. Yet there is not quite developed the complexity and precision on the finish compared to other grand cru 2011s poured blind in this flight.
