Domaine Robert Arnoux, Romanée Saint Vivant Grand Cru 1993

Esquin Imports, San Francisco CA.

Maturing ruby.  Not your usual RSV; those tilt towards fat and swollen and this one hardly refers to the body at all.  Windswept plateaus and ancient forests; the exotic spice and bush tea flavors are imprinted in fine-tipped pen.  Pulsing with terroir and the finish is heaven-sent.  A great ’93.  Now – 2020+.
