2016 Alain Hudelot-Noëllat 'Romanée-St-Vivant' Grand Cru
SKU: B303/FRRegular price $1,499.95
"The 2016 Romanée Saint-Vivant Grand Cru was the last one to finish its malolactic this year. It has a very pure and focused bouquet, the Malconsorts plus one if you like, sporting outstanding mineralité and tension. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, slightly chalky tannin, conveying plenty of energy and tension, quite sharp in the mouth with a fine bead of acidity and a sustained finish. The plus sign indicates that I am conservative with my score given the late malolactic and it would not surprise me if it steps up a level once in bottle, (WA)".
