Follin-Arbelet Romanee St.Vivant Grand Cru 2012
The 2012 Follin-Arbelet Romanee St.Vivant Grand Cru showcases the elegance and power of the Pinot Noir grape from the renowned Romanee St.Vivant vineyard. In the glass, the wine displays a deep ruby hue, with a captivating bouquet of black cherry, currants, violets, and a hint of spice. The palate is beautifully structured, offering a velvety texture and a harmonious balance of ripe fruit, silky tannins, and bright acidity. The finish is long and persistent, with lingering notes of dark fruit, earth, and a touch of oak. This wine will continue to evolve gracefully in the cellar and is an excellent choice for pairing with game dishes, such as venison or pheasant.
Producer tasting notes - Deep in color, the wines with aromas of violets, small red and black fruits, are immensely long in the mouth, the tannins always very silky and elegant providing great persistence.
