2012 Domaine de la Romanee-Conti Romanee-Saint-Vivant Grand Cru, Cote de Nuits, France

Romanée-Saint-Vivant is a grand cru vineyard on the lower slopes of the Côte d'Or escarpment in Vosne-Romanée. It covers 9.4 hectares (23 acres) of land, making it the largest climat in the village – although it is of average size when compared with all of Burgundy's grand crus. Romanée-Saint-Vivant's Pinot Noir wines tend to be lighter and more aromatic than other grands crus in Vosne-Romanée.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate

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. Reviewed by Neal Martin. Issue date: February 2015. Drinking window: 2017-2045.

Vinous

An intense, almost exotic wine, the 2012 Romanee St.-Vivant takes the elements that make RSV such a distinct site and simply amplifies all of them. Dense and yet also seamless on the palate, the 2012 RSV will need considerable time to shed its baby fat, but it is impressive just the same. Reviewed by Antonio Galloni. Issue date: October 2015. Drinking window: 2027 - 2052.
