The 100-Point Romanee-St- Vivant 2016 from Louis Latour

 

Louis Latour RSV 2016
A Grand Cru of the highest calibre 
The Latour family has been proprietors of a part of Romanée-Saint-Vivant since December 1898 when the Marey family's monopoly was split up. They are one of just 10 owners of this prestigious vineyard.
 
Their parcel - "Les Quatre Journaux" - is situated at the south-west of the appellation, a few meters from the Romanée-Conti vineyard.
 
A "Journal" is an old Burgundian measurement corresponding to approximately 0.4 hectares. It was the amount of land that a man could farm in a day. Latour's original purchase was 1.6 hectares - hence "Les Quatre Journaux". Today they own 0.76 hectares of Romanée-Saint-Vivant.
 
Prices of the Grand Crus from Vosne-Romanee have rocketed in recent years and today it has become almost impossible to find new release Romanee-St-Vivant or Richebourg priced at less than $1000.00 a bottle, especially if it has received critical acclaim.

The 2016 from Louis Latour certainly has done that being awarded a perfect 100 Points from James Suckling.
We have a case of this wine available. We all know how difficult it is to purchase Grand Crus from Vosne-Romanee and prices are going through the roof. We offer the wine at a Pre Arrival Price of $999.00 a bottle. It is significant sum for a bottle but compared to the price of many Vosne Grand Crus it is reasonable. And not all Grand Crus achieve a perfect 100-Point score.

James Suckling Tasting Report: This is a grand cru that shows its intensity and complexity and greatness from the beginning. Blackberry, licorice and stone aromas. Full body and a center palate that shows ripe fruit and full richness. Then the tannins kick in. Great wine. Drink in 2024. 100 Points
