Sotheby's is currently hosting an auction featuring a highly sought-after wine, the Romanée St. Vivant 1993 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti. With a current bid of HK$13,000 and two bidders vying for this rare gem, wine enthusiasts are eagerly awaiting the final result.
This exquisite vintage from Côte de Nuits, Grand Cru showcases a slightly scuffed label and capsule, indicating its age. The presence of old seepage adds to the authenticity and intrigue of this Japanese-imported bottle, complete with a back label written in Japanese.
Described by Serena Sutcliffe, MW as a "lovely sweet Pinot Noir nose," this 16-year-old wine exhibits signs of maturity. Its bouquet reveals cedary smokiness, while its softness caresses the palate upon tasting. As the flavors unfold, hints of cocoa and coffee dance alongside the distinct aroma of cassis. The refreshing acidity persists on the finish, leaving a lasting impression.
Although it may not possess the same polish and breeding as more recent vintages of Romanée St. Vivant wines in the 21st century, this particular bottle entices connoisseurs with its irresistibility and readiness to be enjoyed.
Stored in a private temperature-controlled cellar prior to inspection, this well-preserved bottle comes with an impeccable provenance. Wine collectors and enthusiasts can take comfort knowing that it has been stored under optimal conditions.
With the auction set to end on February 1st, 2024 at Sotheby's Hong Kong branch, inpiduals still have time to participate in this exciting opportunity to acquire an iconic piece of winemaking history. As each bid increases the anticipation for who will claim this exceptional bottle, all eyes remain on Sotheby's to witness the final outcome.
