98 points, “The wine has a darker, plummy fruit character as compared to the Richebourg and a grippy, substantial feel with more tannic strength and an impressively lingering finish. It seems if anything to have gained in substance and depth since tasted in barrel.” – Decanter 

98 points, “Awesome length. What distinguishes this from the Richebourg is the tension throughout from start to finish. Heavenly.” – Antonio Galloni’s Vinous

97 points, “Revisiting the bottled 2019s was thrilling, as these are some of the most sensual, dramatic young wines I've ever tasted at this address.” – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

97 points, “I thought this was marvellous from barrel but it’s even better now that it’s in bottle.” – Allen Meadows, Burghound

97 points, “Some blacker fruit alongside the crushed strawberry, builds beautifully across the palate, sensual certainly and I am sure the sense of refined detail I look for in Romanée St-Vivant will come later.” – Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy

97 points, “Lovely vivid fruit here: it has a wall of sweet, supple, bright fruit with finesse and structure.” – Jamie Goode, Wine Anorak

The Romanée-Saint-Vivant Grand Cru 2019 comes from less tan 6 hectares on a former holding of the Marey-Monge family, and only the old-vine fruit is used. It’s intensely aromatic and hauntingly beautiful, with a crisp freshness almost like a frosty blue-sky morning. But this is also quite a muscular vintage, so although the vibrant cherry, wild strawberry and fresh raspberry fruit is laced with rose petal, iris and peony, there are also darker notes of crème de cassis, tobacco, graphite, bergamot, coffee and exotic spices layered beneath. This is a phenomenal Pinot Noir with a long life ahead of it.

Sometimes simply called DRC or “the Domaine”, Domaine de la Romanée-Conti is the most famous name in Burgundy, if not the entire world of fine wine. The Grand Cru site, from which it takes its name, tops Wine-Searcher’s list of The World’s Top 50 Most Expensive Wines. Any one of their wines would be the crowning glory of any collection, offering an experience that many can only dream of. Based in Vosne-Romanée, their holdings include the mythical La Tâche and Romanée-Conti, over half of Romanée-Saint-Vivant, one third of Grands Échézeaux and half of Richebourg, not to mention vineyards in Corton, Le Montrachet and Batard-Montrachet. Mind-numbingly low yields from their old vines exacerbate the scarcity, making availability a perpetually fleeting thing.

Wine Critic Neal Martin says Domaine de la Romanée-Conti’s “wines are so rare, sought after and let us be frank, so prohibitively expensive; that mere utterance is as close as most people get… their raison d’etre is to offer pleasure, these are bottles surfeit with enjoyment, surfeit with profundity.” He notes that the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay produced here offer “finesse, balance, poise, refinement” and a capacity to “age like no other wine I can think of. Quite simply, they have an unerring ability to maintain the freshness and poise over decades.” He concludes that those lucky enough to get their hands on a bottle “may be in for an unforgettable experience.”
