International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94(est. $900-$1,250) Good bright, deep red. Wonderfully perfumed, nuanced nose offers raspberry, smoke, earth, white truffle and this vineyard's typical cocktail of Oriental spices. Compellingly silky-sweet and suave on the palate, with great aromatic lift to the red fruit, spice and mineral flavors. This offers a rare combination of high and low tones on the nose and palate. Taut and sharply focused wine, finishing with superb, palate-saturating minerally persistence and great finesse of tannins. A great 2004.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: March/April 2007
Wine Spectator | Rating: 95A solemn, muscular character emanates from this wine, featuring black currant, licorice and spice aromas and flavors. Compact and firm, this has broad shoulders and sweetness to the fruit. Offers nice tension, ripe tannins and fine length, with a rich, spicy aftertaste.'Non-blind 2004 DRC tasting (February 2007).Author: Bruce Sanderson
Jancis Robinson | Rating: 18Relatively pale a this early stage. Lovely broad, complex, flattering, autumnal notes on the nose and then very fresh and crystalline on the palate offering a sumptuous combination of that Tƒche fan of rich violet flavours with refreshment too. Racy but far from skinny - more weight than the Richebourg. Very polished though perhaps not the weight of some really great vintages.Author: Jancis RobinsonIssue: 01/31/2007

Domaine de la Romanée-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 grands crus Romanée-Conti, La Tâche, Richebourg, Romanée-Saint-Vivant, Grands Échezeaux, Échezeaux, and Montrachet, of which both Romanée Conti and La Tâche are monopoles.
Co-proprietor Aubert de Villaine has farmed the vineyards organically since 1986 and has 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 clearly reflect a sense of place and have the ability to age while increasing in both character and value.
