Herb-laced berries and loads of roses are found in the nose of the 2002 Romanee-St.-Vivant. This extremely elegant, superbly ripe wine is graceful, feminine, and offers superb mouth-feel. This floral, lacy work of art does not bowl over the taster with power, yet does so with nuance and refinement. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2016. Note: This estate’s 2002s are not yet released. The above estimate is based on the prices of the 2001s, taking into account that the dollar has significantly dropped. Importers include: Martine’s Wines, Novato, CA; tel. (415) 883-0400; and Lauber Imports, Somerville, NJ; tel. (908) 725-2100
