Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Spectator | Rating: 93

Beautiful wine, with a hint of exotic rose petal, violet and oak aromas. Full-bodied, silky, showing nice mocha, spice and blackberry character, more fruit than terroir. Deftly made. Ripe, suave finish. More delicate and lighter than DRC's Grands Echezeaux.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 91

This wine is a gorgeously elegant, complex, feminine, highly-detailed and rich wine. I was surprised by how well it showed, and feel it can be drunk over the course of the next 10 years.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

Expressive aromas of cassis, redcurrant, truffle, espresso and spicy oak. Dense, sweet and oaky, with lovely gentle texture and nicely buffered tannins. Stylish rather than powerful, and already displaying a lot of personality. This wine is usually overshadowed by those that follow in this cellar, but it's a lovely Echezeaux.

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.

Wine Varietal: Pinot Noir


Notorious for its fickle growing patterns, Pinot Noir vines prefer long, cool growing conditions and tend to mutate easily, leaving behind numerous clones and inconsistent flavor profiles. Although it is one of the three major varieties used in Champagne production, Burgundy is the traditional home of Pinot Noir. The 30-mile stretch of hills known as the Cote d'Or is valued as the world's premier production area. Pinot Noir is planted all over the world. In the United States, Sonoma, the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the Willamette Valley produce top-notch wines from this variety. Other notable countries include New Zealand, Australia, and Chile. Typical descriptors for Pinot Noir include strawberry, raspberry, cherry, mushroom, and meaty notes.
