Romanee St Vivant Domaine de L Arlot 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2010 Romanee St. Vivant is a hard wine to fully evaluate at this stage. It was the last wine to finish its malolactic fermentation and is therefore developing at a slower pace than the other wines in the lineup. Currently it is the wine’s intensity, energy and drive that come through loud and clear. Given the exceptional level of the estate’s 2010s, there is every reason to be optimistic about the Richebourg. I look forward to re-tasting this wine in a few months, at which time my rating may need to be revised upward...94-96" WA 02/12 "Good bright red-ruby. Still quite reduced on the nose, but aeration brought rich aromas of wild strawberry, black raspberry, minerals and mocha. Then tight, juicy and unevolved on the palate, conveying an impression of considerable power. The least expressive today of these young 2010s, but the very long, tannic finish expands impressively as the wine opens in the glass....91-94" IWC 01/12
