Romanee St Vivant 1993

Romanee St-Vivant - Domaine de la Romanee Conti

24 years

I am never as thrilled with the Romanee-St.-Vivant as are others. Certainly the 1993 possesses the tell-tale, earthy, cinnamon, herb, and black-cherry-scented nose with an undeniable strong mineral and vegetal component. The wine comes across as slightly rustic, with high tannin, and its toughness and compactness indicate it needs 8-9 years of cellaring. It may have the potential to last for two decades, but I am not sure how much fruit is going to emerge from behind the savage tannin level. It is medium-bodied and marked by its terroir. The DRC's 1993s possess the vintage's toughness, tannic structure, austerity, and aging potential. They will not be flattering to drink in their youth, and most will require 6-10 years of cellaring. Typical of the vintage, they appear to be the most tannic and structured wines made at this domaine since 1983.
