Romanée-Saint Vivant is the name of one of the most famous Grand Cru vineyards in the world, located in the lower part of the Côte d'Or escarpment, in the village of Vosne-Romanée. A predominantly clayey climate on a calcareous base covered with brown earths, from which originates an unusually delicate Pinot Noir that fascinates the lovers of Burgundy wines.

Medium intense ruby ​​red in the glass, attracts the nose with persuasive aromas of ripe red and black fruits, floral touches and notes of sweet spices. In the mouth it is manifested in all its femininity, fine and elegant, with silky tannins that close with a slight final "scratch". A wine that expresses grace and power, not noticeable in the first sips because of the perfect balance but which reveals itself little by little in the following ones: the "great seductress".

Try it with a roast quail with foie gras.

The name Saint-Vivant derives from the monastic order that originally owned it. The vineyard is divided between different producers including the Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, however, despite the domaine having a part owned by it since 1988, it was the monopoly of the Marey-Monge family whose name is still maintained on the label today.
