2010 Louis Latour Romanee-Saint-Vivant Grand Cru Les Quatre Journaux Cote de Nuits France
$469.99 USD $550.00 USD
A delicate, detailed red, with floral, cherry and wild berry notes meshing seamlessly with the succulent texture and refined structure. Vibrant, this lingers effortlessly with an aftertaste of fruit, spice and mineral. Best from 2016 through 2035.
Rated 94 Points Wine Spectator
This is spicier than and not quite as cool and fresh as the Chambertin though that is natural as the terroir of Chambertin is much colder than that of Romanée St. Vivant. There is good depth to the plum, violet and cassis suffused nose that is trimmed in discreet wood before introducing mouth coating and velvety flavors that are supported by refined tannins and excellent balance and serious persistence. This appears to be at the head of the class of the Latour 2010s.
