2001 Romanee St. Vivant, Domaine Leroy

This dry red wine has quite high intensity ruby colour but it has a touch of haziness on its clarity. On nose it gives fairly pronounced aromas of strawberry jam, cabbage, mushroom, muddy, vanilla spice and touch of forest floor. Medium acidity, alcohol and bodied, the flavour intensity is over medium level with flavours of red berry, cabbage, spice, mushroom, strawberry and vegetal. Slightly over medium tannin but touch of greenness is detected. Close to long length with subtle red plum finish. (93)
