    (just 3-1/2 barrels made, the single new 350-liter cask was |rinsed| by vinifying a lesser wine in it first; not yet racked): Bright dark red. Medicinal black raspberry and cocoa powder aromas are lifted by an urgent crushed stone note. Dense and sappy, with powerful minerality giving the palate a remarkably penetrating character. Wonderfully fine-grained grand cru with a magically light touch and outstanding lingering perfume. Devauges expects to rack this wine for the first time just three weeks before bottling it in June.

    From the domaine's 24 rows of vines just below Romanee-Conti, the 2012 Romanee-Saint-Vivant Grand Cru has a complex, mineral-rich nose that unfolds beautifully in the glass. The palate has just a little gas to shake off, but it is so alive with a sorbet-like freshness: blood orange mixed with vibrant red fruit. It reminds me of tasting some of the 2005 from barrel with its sense of energy and animation. Outstanding - alas just three barrels produced.
