Domaine Arnoux-Lachaux, Romanee-Saint-Vivant 2008

The Romanee-Saint-Vivant from Arnoux-Lachaux is made from a 0.375 ha plot in the southern part of the vineyard – just above the garden of Bernard Gros and just north of La Grande Rue. The 2008 edition of this lovely wine offers a quite expressive nose, with dark and red fruits – cherries, raspberries and blueberries – spiced with coffee, oak and a refined floral element. On the palate very lovely refined fruit … with a very fine depth and complexity. It’s intense and well balanced – quite forward after some time in the glass – offering a delicate midpalate and a long complex finish. The 2008 vintage and this refined vineyard really suits the somewhat dense style of the domaine. Seductive and refined – big but still quite lightfooted – Impressive!
