Romanée-Saint-Vivant – 20 years on

I’m planning a tasting of 16 different labels of RSV from the 1999 vintage – in Bern, in Spring 2019. All the bottles were bought by me between 2001 and 2002…

Clearly it won’t be a cheap tasting, but get in touch if you’re interested to join – 10 places available – anyone who brings a magnum of the Leroy can get in for free though!

Waiting will be:

L’Arlot Clavelier et Fils Louis Jadot Nicolas Potel
Robert Arnoux Joseph Drouhin Louis Latour Antonin Rodet
Sylvain Cathiard Grivelet Moillard-Grivot Romanée-Conti
Champy Hudelot-Noelat Parent Thomas-Moillard

    Hi Bill sounds great fun very interested subject dates

  2. Tom Blach

    What an interesting list, I had no idea that there were Grivelet labelled bottles so recently.
    Are the Moillard-Grivot and Thomas-Moillard from the same plot?

  3. Harri Såltin

    Very interested indeed. Bern is still only an hour from Zürich.

  4. Filippo MG

    Interest date depending…

    Interested : depends on date and my wife’s attitude (not a wine enthousiast) because I won’t go in that direction for less than a week (lived in Bern for half a year back in 1971 and still have a contact there with whom I correspond frequently). Also in Lent – I have some serious musical commitments which still have to confirm.

    Very interested. Will be in Reims 18-22 March so hope you choose March 23/24!

    I’m not sure yet which continent I’ll be on that date, Bill, and I can’t supply the Leroy, but if I’m back on this side of the Pond I could supply a bottle of JJ Confuron, if that interests you.

    Maybe we’ll see each other in the coming weeks (Drouhin and/or Gevrey tastings?) and can discuss.

    Hi Bill,
    I’d like to join, based on dates: I’ll be booked from March 24 to April 1st already.

    Happy new year and thanks for all efforts!
