The 2012 Romanée St Vivant, incidentally served before Richebourg rather than afterwards unlike previous years, was picked on September 28 and 29 at 24 hectoliters per hectare. There is a wondrous, ethereal purity to this 2012, a little more sumptuous than I recall it from barrel, with kirsch and freshly picked strawberries. As it opens, it gains more and more sensuality. The palate is rounded, almost curvaceous in the mouth, clearly more concentrated than the 2011 with a sense of authority and purpose, a bit of daring-do on the long finish. It leaves a slightly ferrous residue on the aftertaste, completing what is a marvelous and sensual Grand Cru. 1,148 cases produced.
Neil Martin for Robert Parker 96

An explosive, energetic wine, the 2012 Romanée-St.-Vivant is shaping up to be a jewel of a wine. Even with all of the richness of the year, the RSV is wonderfully lifted and precise, its power and pedigree implied rather than stated. As is often the case, the style is elusive and hard to describe. Now you see it, now you don't...in other words, the essence of Grand Cru Burgundy. I can't wait to taste the 2012 from bottle. Today, it is simply magnificent. --
Antonio Galloni 95-97
