Lot #13. Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Romanée-Saint-Vivant Marey-Monge 2012

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 97+ AG.
"Usually one of the more seductive, feminine wines in the range, the 2012 Romanée St.-Vivant is unusually powerful and structured. Huge, searing tannins and super-expressive, bright acidity both are a prominent today. The 2012 is going to need a number of years in bottle to approach the early part of what is likely to be a very long drinking window. A huge finish totally drenched with saline notes is breathtaking, if not especially typical of RSV. Needless to say, the 2012 is going to be a fascinating wine to follow over the next several decades." Vinous, Apr 2015
Provenance: The Mont Blanc Cellar
Notes: #00358.
