The tasting Grandes Maisons Grands Cru during Grands Jours de Bourgogne included the opportunity to taste some of the big wines from the 2015 vintage – wines I rarely have the chance to taste and evaluate from bottle.
The Louis Latour, Romanée Saint-Vivant Les Quatre Journaux 2015 is not showing well. 100% new oak, quite dominant, with a hollow oaky midpalate feel. Lovely wines have been made from Romanée Saint-Vivant in the 2015 vintage – but this is sadly missing the generous and vivid fruit found in the other wines I have tasted in this vintage. Quite one-dimensional and lacking true depth and fruit intensity. This is seriously disappointing for the vintage in my view. One should expect more from a great terroir like this.
(Drink from ?) – Disappointing – (Not Rated) – Tasted 15/03/2018.
