Good bright, full red. Pretty aromas of dark cherry and black raspberry lifted by a floral topnote. Round, sappy and succulent, showing a bit of youthful medicinal character to its dark fruit, mocha and licorice flavors. Finishes with good breadth, lightly dusty tannins and classic dryness. The team vinified with 60% to 70% whole clusters in 2011.

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.
