Described by Mme. Leroy as being aromatically reminiscent of “a bouquet of flowers,” the perfumed, floral, red fruit-scented 2003 Romanee-St.-Vivant reveals massive depth to its red cherry, raspberry, and candied strawberry-flavored character. Medium to full-bodied, this focused, satin-textured effort combines characteristics of precociously forward fruit with firm tannin and an impressively long finish, rendering the maturity predictions exceedingly difficult. 2008-2015?
