Saint-Romain?is a small village in the?C?te de Beaune?sub-region of?Burgundy?which has had its own communal?appellation?since October 1947. This covers both elegant, prefumed red wines from the?Pinot Noir?grape variety, and white wines showing plenty of minerality which are made from?Chardonnay.
On the nose, the wine is intense and delicate. It reveals a clean and well-blended mixture of flavors of honey, cocoa, lightly toasted hazelnuts and candied citrus fruit without exuberance, but luxurious simplicity! A savoury explosion of ripe fruit on the attack, revealing red fruit, white chocolate, caramel and Danish pastry, typical of Cristal. Silky, concentrated texture, leaning on intense, powerful and vinous structure, but maintaining refinement. The palate builds up to attain a delicious sensation of well-blended harmony of flavours. A fresh finish with a hint of bitterness making it almost crunchy.
