RATINGS

A very ripe and full mature nose that is exceptionally spicy and now showing its age with sweet, round and impressively rich flavors that are intense and mouth coating on the admirably long finish.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits, 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.
