Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 95(+?)

Good deep ruby-red. Subtle notes of plum, redcurrant, truffle and game, plus a faintly liqueur-like quality. Great sweetness and sensuous palate feel; this is round and broad, while La Tache is more vertical. On the other hand, the previous wine comes across today as high-pitched, tighter, even a bit astringent, and perhaps even more impressive. But this wine is extraordinarily suave and long on the aftertaste, with extremely fine tannins.

About This Producer


Domaine de la Romanee Conti (DRC) is Burgundy's most famous estate, producing all grand cru wines from 25 hectares of vines. The wines are made in extremely limited quantities and generate some of the highest prices on the market. DRC produces the grand crus Romanee Conti, La Tache, Richebourg, Romanee Saint Vivant, Grands Echezeaux, Echezeaux and Montrachet, of which both Romanee Conti and La Tache are monopoles.

Aubert de Villiane has farmed the vineyards organically since 1986 and adhered to traditional, natural winemaking practices. Only natural yeasts are used and aging is done in 100% new oak. The wines are characterized by finesse, balance and refinement. They directly reflect their sense of place and have the ability to age while increasing in both character and value.
