Domaine Romanée Conti - Montrachet- Grand Cru

Tasting notes

96+ Points - The Wine Advocate

”The 2015 Montrachet Grand Cru is still predictably youthful, unfurling in the glass with aromas of crisp Anjou pear, buttered citrus, tangerine oil and a prominent framing of very classy new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, multidimensional and concentrated, both satiny and textural without being remotely unctuous, and underpinned by succulent, even tangy acids. At this stage, where the wine really shows its pedigree is in its extraordinarily long, oak-inflected finish. Given the vintage, one might have expected more ripeness and drama, but the domaine is picking its Montrachet a bit earlier these days, and that has done it no harm at all in 2015. It would be interesting to taste this wine alongside Ramonet's example, which is both more textural and less overtly oaky, but my sense is that the two are on the same qualitative level in their very different styles.” - William Kelley

    Domaine de la Romanée-Conti

    Onshore Cellars - ICONIC Producer

    Unusually for Burgundy the wines are matured entirely in new French oak barrels, for between sixteen and twenty months. It is undoubtedly this oak influence that lends them their depth and hugely long-lived ageing potential Multilayered and full flavoured with huge depth and power, and yet the beguiling ethereal delicacy of Burgundy. Truly sublime.

    In many ways, Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, or just DRC, is the greatest wine estate on earth producing some of Burgundy’s greatest (and most expensive) wines.

    "Domaine de la Romanée-Conti – the most hallowed name in Burgundian wine, and quite possibly the entire vinous world; a name that is implicitly regal, indisputably coveted and effortlessly content in its position of unimpeachable noblesse. DRC. Its acronym alone suffices to command the attention of everyone who aspires to enter the realm of wine Valhalla.” Sotheby’s New York

    The history revolves around the ownership of the eponymous vineyard. Called La Romanée, for reasons unknown, it was the subject of a bidding war between Madame Pompadour, the mistress of Louis XV, and her bitter rival, the Prince of Conti. He won, and added his name in victory. Of course the Revolution soon put paid to all that. Ownership has passed down through one or two families and multiple generations since then and the Domaine is now run by Aubert de Villaine and Henri-Frederic Roch.

    Making wines almost exclusively from Grand Cru vineyards, including the wholly owned monopole parcels of La Tâche and La Romanée-Conti itself (from which the estate takes its name), the wines of DRC offer another dimension to Burgundy.

    “I am reminded of my university studies in music. There are some compositions that are so profoundly moving because they only point out the futility in trying to truly understand them. Some things remain beyond the full grasp of the human intellect. Romanée-Conti is the vinous equivalent.” Antonio Gallioni
