1 in stock
A red wine from Burgundy, France. Domaine de la Romanee Conti is co-owned by the de Villaine and Leroy/Roch families, the former successors to Jacques-Marie Duvault Blochet who bought the vineyard of La Romanée Conti in 1869, the latter since acquiring the shares of other descendants of Duvault-Blochet in 1942. The Domaine is today run by Aubert de Villaine and Henri-Frederic Roch. Many people in Burgundy just refer to ‘DRC’ as “the Domaine”.
The domaine has 25 hectares of vineyards, all Grand Crus. As well as the the 1.8 hectare monopole La Romanee Conti, the Domaine purchased its other monopoly, La Tache, in 1933, along with significant holdings in the grand crus of Richebourg, Romanee St Vivant, Grands-Echezeaux, Echezeaux and Le Montrachet at various points in the 19th and 20th centuries. The Domaine is the largest owners of each of the red wine grand crus.
An intensely floral nose is composed of red and black fruit aromas that are nuanced and beautifully elegant though there is a noticeable herbal tea character. There is excellent punch to the powerful, focused and intense middle weight plus flavors that possess outstanding precision and minerality on the still muscular finish that delivers strikingly good length.
