Reviews For This Wine


 
Burghound | 89

Quite spicy and elegant with a lovely core of complexity and superior length. Not as structured as the rest of these 98s but there is enough material here to warrant 8 to 12 years of aging.

International Wine Cellar | 88

Saturated red-ruby. Spicy aromas of red and black fruits, roasted nuts and tobacco, plus a whiff of apple. Rich, supple and rather full, with redcurrant and oak flavors. Despite firm acidity, this could use a bit more freshness. Finishes with spicy oak and a hint of caramel.

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.
