Maison Dominique Laurent, Romanée Saint Vivant Grand Cru 1996

Imported by Wine Cellars LTD., Briarcliff Manor NY.

Sapphire.  In a vertical the ’96 stands out as distinctive and inferential: nothing’s really leafing out yet but everything wants to.  Purple lilac and rose hips and russet associations.  Intricate sublimity in dew form and the finish shimmers like a blue moon rising.  Only 590 bottles produced in ’96.  Now – 2025+.
