($383) Medium red. Blacker fruits on the nose, lifted by violet and mineral nuances. A step beyond the Echezeaux in sweetness, texture and power. Fuller and more complex, with sappy dark berries complicated by leather and minerals. Finishes with round, sweet tannins and excellent length.

Lightish ruby. Sumptuously melded nose. Very firm, brisk palate entry, rather focussed, energetic wine – quite different from the Echézeaux’s more blurred impression. Lots of firm fruit here almost masks the considerable tannic charge. Particularly long finish with autumnal notes.

Ruby colored with a beautiful aroma of flowers, minerals and notes of perfume with some cherry in the background. On the palate some dark berries and even a hint of pepper. The finish fell a little short.

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.
