    Default 2004 Robert Arnoux Romanee St. Vivant

    A friend brought a bottle to dinner last night.... 2004 Robert Arnoux
    Romanee St. Vivant. I thought it was too young (it was) but he
    insisted that we open it so we did. I haven't had a RSV in years.
    Wow. Deep burgundy in color. Unmistakable perfume of black earth,
    truffles, sweet black cherry and raspberries. Smooth and firm on the
    palate with a bright minerality and earthy edge. Plenty of sweet ripe
    fruits with edgy tannins just starting to resolve. The wine is still
    very young and should improve over the next 10 years. "A-"

    Not my bottle. A friend brought it to dinner. We spilt a mixed case
    on release but I didn't buy any RSV. My recollection is that it was
    around $200.

    Good buy even at that price. Hard to find under $400 right now.

    Yep, in retrospect I wish I had bought a few bottles.
