Romanee St Vivant Domaine de l'Arlot 2016 (750ML)
93-95 Points - Neil Martin - The Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Romanée-Saint-Vivant Grand Cru includes 100% whole cluster but no new oak. This is because the fermentation was conducted in a new 15-hectoliter wooden tank, so the élevage is done in one-, two- and three-year-old barrels to reduce the wood influence. It has a very feminine, precise bouquet with dark cherries, raspberry, bergamot tea and just a hint of crushed rose petals, not powerful but nicely detailed. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, slightly crunchy in texture, thanks to the stem addition, and very well poised with a mineral-driven finish that flourishes on the aftertaste. This is another excellent contribution to the vintage from the domaine..." 12/29/17
94 Points, Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator: "Prominent cherry, black currant, violet and mineral aromas and flavors mark this racy red. Linear in profile and mouthwatering on the long aftertaste, this is underscored by plenty of structure. Best from 2023 through 2043." 10/18
92-95 Points, Burghound: "Once again there is a subtle touch of wood evident on the ripe and almost ostentatiously spicy nose of violet, lavender, clove and red cherry scents. There is impressive concentration to the middle weight plus flavors that brim with dry extract that imparts a seductive mouthfeel as well as buffers the borderline robust tannins shaping the wonderfully persistent finish. This is a big RSV and like the ForÃªts St. Georges, a wine that is going to require extended keeping." 1/18
