2018 Domaine de L'Arlot Romanée-St-Vivant Grand Cru (Previously $700)

SKU #1479899 95-97 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Romanée-Saint-Vivant Grand Cru is matured in 20% new oak. It has a very intense bouquet of bright red currant, wild strawberry, pomegranate and rose petal aromas that feels sensual and seductive. The medium-bodied palate offers succulent, fleshy, quite grippy tannins that lend this Romanée-Saint-Vivant volume and mass. It is very well balanced and pure, and feels structured, almost Richebourg-like, toward the persistent finish. This is a very serious Grand Cru that will offer 20 to 30 years of drinking pleasure. (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The most backward cuvée in the cellar when I visited was the 2018 Romanée-Saint-Vivant Grand Cru, a rich and muscular wine that unwinds to reveal notions of cherries, cassis and berries mingled with nuances of exotic spice and new oak. On the palate, it's full-bodied, fleshy and structured, with refined but youthfully assertive tannins. A wine of considerable presence, this will need its remaining élevage to round out, but it's very promising. (WK) 93-95+ Inner quote mark (1/2020)

93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Subtle but not imperceptible wood influence is present on the ultra-spicy yet still quite restrained nose of pretty red berry liqueur-like aromas that include a whiff of herbal tea. The attractively fresh and vibrant medium weight flavors possess a juicy but still very well delineated mouthfeel before culminating in a punch and beautifully persistent finish where the only nit is a hint of warmth. Note too that this is a very firm RSV that is going to require every bit of a decade to soften up and one that should reward 20+. Inner quote mark (1/2021)

K&L Notes

92-97 points Jasper Morris, for Inside Burgundy: "One third whole bunch vinification. 13.3% alcohol. A fine depth of red purple colour. The nose is very backward still, not much in the way of aromatics, with a thick weight of deep grainy raspberry fruit covering the palate. Almost a little raw at the back, but shows real promise. It takes time to see the detail. Time in the glass then brings out the roses with the raspberries, some white pepper too. Real raw intensity here. It is going to be good! Excellent acidity."
