Reviews for 1998 Romanee Conti, Domaine de la Romanee St Vivant

BH 91
Burghound - Burghound, April 2005
A beautifully spicy nose is finally beginning to open to reveal wonderfully complex and spicy aromatics and fruit that is still 100% primary. The medium full rich spicy and intense flavors possess ripe tannins... A beautifully spicy nose is finally beginning to open to reveal wonderfully complex and spicy aromatics and fruit that is still 100% primary. The medium full rich spicy and intense flavors possess ripe tannins underpinning the considerable structural spine and it's clear that this will definitely require another 7 to 10 years in the cellar.

Saturated ruby-red. Sappy rather wild aromas of raspberry smoke tar and mulch; more deeply pitched than the Grands-Echezeaux but still quite tangy. Fat sweet and full but less precise and lively than the Grands-Echezeaux... Saturated ruby-red. Sappy rather wild aromas of raspberry smoke tar and mulch; more deeply pitched than the Grands-Echezeaux but still quite tangy. Fat sweet and full but less precise and lively than the Grands-Echezeaux; flavors of redcurrant and iron. Fairly rich wine finishing with good breadth and dusty slightly dry tannins. I'd be a bit more optimistic about the ultimate potential of this wine if it were more primary today.
