Located just on southern part of Romanee-Conti, Romanee-St-Vivant covers 9 hectares of Vosne-Romanee, situated on the lower slopes. Grapes from this vineyard produces the lightest, most delicate and aromatic Grand Cru from Vosne-Romanee - definitely a lovely Grand Cru to follow in a lifetime.
Being the top-scored Romanee-St-Vivant in Vintage 2013 under famous wine critic Neal Martin, we are thrilled to be able to source a very small parcel of this production by Franck Follin-Arbelet as this is not an easy wine to find in the market. Franck Follin-Arbelet, who has worked in Burgundy since his childhood, decided to have his own estate in Aloxe-Corton in 1993. This is one of his most remarkable wines which is well-worth your consideration -

Tasted blind at the Burgfest tasting in Beaune, the 2013 Romanée Saint-Vivant Grand Cru hit the ball out of the park and was one of my favorite wines of the vintage. It clearly has a lot of fruit on the nose with delicately spiced black cherries, bay leaf and undergrowth unfurling with each swirl of the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit, a silver thread of acidity, extraordinarily pure and caressing with beautiful poise on the finish. Class from start to finish, this is a bona fide Grand Cru. Tasted September 2016.
