Domaine De La Romanee Conti

Considered the pinnacle of Burgundy, Domaine de la Romanée-Conti produces some of the world's most revered wines from its tiny vineyards in Vosne-Romanée. Two of the Domaine's seven grand cru vineyards -- La Romanée-Conti and La Tâche -- are monopoles and unarguably the greatest vineyards in Burgundy. Montrachet in Chassagne, Richebourg, Romanée-St.-Vivant, Grands Échézeaux and Echézeaux are also grand cru vineyards, yielding sublime wines that are among the most highly sought after, seductive and rarest in the world.

"The Domaine's wines, particularly Romanée-Conti, La Tâche, Richebourg and in recent vintages Romanée-St.-Vivant, have an almost magical aura about them. Much of this stems from their consistent quality from vintage to vintage and their ability to age extremely well. They also transmit a sense of place, the fundamental notion of climat that is central to the character of great Burgundy. As such, each vineyard has its own distinctive character, structure and style." Wine Spectator, Bruce Sanderson

Domaine de la Romanee Conti Richebourg 2015
Incredibly bold and opulent aromatics bursting with sweet strawberry confit, cherry candy, toffee apples, bruised black plums and a sprinkling of crushed peppercorns and chalk dust. The palate sings a bold joyous tune of opulence, generosity, flamboyance and hedonistic pleasure. Such breath, depth

Domaine De La Romanee Conti Grands Echezeaux 2015
The Grands Echezeaux is decidedly deeper and denser and more grande than the Echezeaux, showing more gravitas and depth of fruit. The nose is brimming full of creamy fraises des bois, bramble berries and red cherry coulis. Such wonderful purity, focus and precision backed by power and intensity. The

Domaine de la Romanee Conti St Vivant 2015
The aromatics are fine and ethereal with a chorus of delicate whispering. The nose shows subtle violet perfume, dusty spicy red fruit lift, raspberry coulis, fresh leafy cranberry, red cherry confit and pink bon bons punctuated by a constant seam of chalky minerality. The palate mimics the

Domaine de la Romanee Conti La Tache 2015
This La Tache is altogether more deep, dark and mysterious, showing plenty of grandeur and elegance, but with reserve and noblesse that only breeding can bring. The aromatics show layers of broody dark fruits, saline cassis, blueberry, black cherry and black bramble berries touched with a lick of

Domaine de la Romanee Conti Romanee Conti 2015
One of the lightest and most crystalline of the wines in colour, what this wine lacks in visual depth, it more than makes up for with its ethereal fragrant beauty. The aromatics are less of a compilation of greatest hits but more of a melodious chorus bellowed by angels on church spires. Smoked

Domaine De La Romanee Conti Grands Echezeaux 2014
95  Decanter 
Decanter 95 The Grands-Echézeaux is a very serious wine indeed in 2014, opening in the glass with an inviting bouquet of red cherry, cedary new oak, dark spice and incipient pot pourri. On the palate the wine is rich, sappy and intense, with ripe tannins beautifully enrobed in cool, crystaline

Domaine de la Romanee Conti Richebourg 2014
93  Decanter 
Decanter 93  The Richebourg is the most overtly structured of the Domaine’s 2015s, revealing a pretty bouquet of wild strawberry, spice, licorice and creamy new oak. On the palate the wine is rich and ample, with an authoritative and powerful structural chassis of fine-grained but firm tannins and

96  Decanter 
Decanter 96  The 2014 Romanée-Conti is fabulous, bursting from the glass with a pure and projected bouquet of strawberry, raspberry, spice and peony. On the palate, the wine is very intense, with great mid-palate depth and persistence and a lovely core of cool fruit underpinned by juicy, lingering

Domaine de la Romanee Conti St Vivant 2014
93  Decanter 
Decanter 93  The Romanée-Saint-Vivant is supremely elegant in 2014, with a detailed and high-toned nose of strawberry, peony, pot pourri and a sweet framing of oak vanillin. On the palate the wine leads with a supple, silky attack of impressive amplitude; but on the mid-palate and finish fine but

Domaine de la Romanee Conti La Tache 2014
97  Decanter 
Decanter 97 " An exotic bouquet of raspberry, orange peel, nutmeg, clove and classy new oak introduces a rich, powerful wine with a supple, expansive attack; a deep, concentrated mid-palate; and a fine-grained but firm tannic footprint on the long and penetrating finish. The La Tâche is just as

94  Neal Martin 
Neal Martin 92-94 "The 2013 Grands Echézeaux Grand Cru is probably more expressive than the Echézeaux on the nose with heightened delineation. Here there is wonderful precision and penetration. A second barrel showed a more floral character, the fruit slightly redder than the first. The palate is

98  Antonio Galloni 
Neil Martin 96-98 Aubert de Villaine remarked that there is "one more dimension" to the 2013 La Tâche Grand Cru and that he would be in no hurry to bottle it. The barrel sample makes an immediate impression on the nose. It is immeasurably complex with cranberry and pomegranate scents at first,

Decanter 96 "With a beautiful ruby colour, the marvellous, multi-faceted aromas just jump out of the glass in an extraordinary expression of Pinot Noir that immediately stakes out its greatness, while offering so much more to discover, superb natural richness on the palate, endless purity. A true

96  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 96 "The 2012 Romanée St Vivant, incidentally served before Richebourg rather than afterwards unlike previous years, was picked on September 28 and 29 at 24 hectoliters per hectare. There is a wondrous, ethereal purity to this 2012, a little more sumptuous than I recall it from barrel,




Domaine de la Romanee Conti Grands Echezeaux 2012
Decanter 18.5/20"Beautiful intensity. Medium ruby with a pink rim. Very elegant black fruit on the nose with some very subtle hints of mocha. Wild berry fruit on the palate with a firm but ripe texture and a sweet spicy finish."

Domaine de la Romanee Conti Echezeaux 2012
Decanter 18.5/20"Extremely approachable already. Medium ruby with a purple rim. Superb rose petal nose but also red fruit and hints of cured meat. Beautiful juicy strawberry on the palate, and a lovely supple texture with a wild spices finish."

Domaine de la Romanee Conti Corton 2012
"Aubert de Villaine, DRC co-owner, described the 2012 vintage as one of the best in recent years, despite a significant drop in the volume of wine produced, due to difficult weather conditions."
