...supple, round and tautly muscled broad-shouldered flavors...almost painfully intense finish...striking length...a karate champion of a wine that isn't especially big but the power and authority of the punch is hard to believe...

91The Wine Advocate

Game, musk, Latakia tobacco, and dark berries in the nose of the Domaine’s 2007 Richebourg foreshadow flavors of salted tart black fruits, roasted game, and hints of black pepper and tar, all underlain by mouth-coating...

91Stephen Tanzer

Captivating aromas of red fruits, minerals, coffee and earth, with a slightly intrusive leesy quality. Sweet and sappy, showing stronger fruit, ...with enticing saline, peppery lift to the middle palate.

18Jancis Robinson

Especially pale. Wonderfully spicy seductive nose. A little less rigid than Romanée-St-Vivant, more spice and sweet flesh. Racy and upright and pretty like Aubert de Villaine himself really. Definitely more delicate than the 2008s. Precise.


Domaine de la Romanee-Conti

Domaine de la Romanee-Conti is unquestionably Burgundy’s most famous estate, and among serious oenophiles, it may be the most famous wine estate in the world. Its Grand Cru Pinot Noirs and one Chardonnay regularly command some of the highest prices for any wine produced anywhere in the world, and according to many reviewers the wines are generally celestial. Though its history is complicated, the domaine is now owned by several long-time Burgundy families, with some owners holding just a very few shares. The 62.5 acres of vineyard owned by the domaine are planted to Pinot Noir and a small amount of Chardonnay. The wines produced are Grands Echezeaux, Echezeaux, Romanee-St.-Vivant, Montrachet, Richebourg, Romanee-Conti, and La Tache. Of the Pinot Noirs, the rarest is the Romanee-Conti, with an annual production of only 450 cases. The most plentiful, theoretically, is La Tache, produced in quantities of about 1,900 cases annually.

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.
