RATINGS

97The Wine Advocate

The palate is medium-bodied and very harmonious on the entry. Filigree tannin frame this wine, perfect acidity lending freshness and tension, here a gradual build towards a delineated, almost edgy finish.

97+ Stephen Tanzer

Plush and utterly spherical in the mouth, delivering a rare combination of richness and weightlessness. Began with primary fruit taking a back seat to lower-toned, soil-driven smoke, minerals and underbrush...

96Burghound.com

...an emphatically powerful vintage for RC with its dense, serious and muscular middle weight plus flavors that retain terrific delineation on the extraordinarily pure and refined finish that seems to go on and on.

19+ Jancis Robinson

Jewel-bright texture and neat impact on the palate. Such precision! Masses of red fruit impact and polish. The sheer fruit concentration almost obliterates the very considerable tannins. These are Burgundy’s prime grapes!

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits-Villages, Vosne-Romanee, Romanee-Conti

Romanee-Conti is the most famous vineyard in the world, and certainly the most celebrated in Burgundy. It is a 4.32-acre Grand Cru parcel owned exclusively by Domaine de la Romanee-Conti. The Grand Cru pinot noir produced from the vineyard is one of the world’s most acclaimed wines. Romanee-Conti is a square-shaped plot enclosed on three sides by a stone wall. It is about half way up the slope with an elevation between 260 and 275 meters. The gentle incline makes for nearly perfect drainage and the vineyard receives sun all day. The soil is a sand, clay and limestone mixture.

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir, Grand Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
