97pts Vinous

The 2020 Romanée St. Vivant Grand Cru is one of the most surprising wines in this lineup. In many ways, the RSV is the quintessential wine at DRC in 2020, as it captures all the qualities that make this vintage so appealing. Sage, mint, blood orange, chalk and red-toned fruit are all lifted by bright saline notes that lend energy and drive from start to finish. A Burgundy of dynamic energy and precision, the 2020 RSV is quite simply dazzling.

97pts Decanter

The 2020 vintage is strikingly bright and fresh given the heat of the year, with expressive, silky cherry fruit and a rose petal edge, crisp acidity yet a lovely balancing ripeness, and a lingering persistence that is a model of finesse and elegance. The days of considering the Romanée-St-Vivant at DRC one of its ‘lesser’ bottlings is long past. The 5.29ha purchased from the Marey-Monge family in 1988 and replanted are delivering today one of the great wines of the appellation.

97pts Jasper Morris

A very intense purple. The bouquet seems fresher than the Grands Echezeaux. Raspberry and blueberry, a stunning concentration of vigorous fresh fruit, a little vanilla from the barrel, but entirely harmonious. The finish too is fresher. Very persistent, a gorgeous Romanée St-Vivant in the making. Shows the oak more at the moment than the two Echezeaux wines, though this will unquestionably integrate.

Winemaker Notes

Romanée-St-Vivant is flirtatious; one cannot help loving it. Behind this grace resides a strength in such perfect balance that, at first, it is imperceptible. Surface area: 5.2858 hectares
