2013 Romanee St. Vivant, Domaine Leroy

Deep ruby with pronounced level aromas of strawberry, rose perfume, red cherry jam, licorice, anise and vanilla, it is dry with medium acidity, medium alcohol and bodied with smooth medium tannin. On palate it has quite high intensity flavours of rose pedal, wild red cherry, licorice and tea. Long length with red berry finish. (94) It has all components of a good wine, but needs time. Good length too.
