Domaine de la Romanée-Conti wines are always in high demand. However, with some fifty-odd vintages under his belt, co-owner and co-director Aubert de Villaine has described 2015 as the “most remarkable of my career,” one that was “out of the ordinary in quality.” So everybody will want to get their hands on this vintage…
Domaine de la Romanée-Conti’s Échézeaux is a wine on an incredible run of form over recent vintages, and that shows no sign of ending. Leading Burgundy expert Allen Meadows describes the 2015 as “wonderfully spicy” and “built-to-age”. Jancis Robinson says this old vine Grand Cru has “glorious concentration” and it “positively throbs with richness”. If you are considering this exceptional wine, please don’t linger too long over the decision, as we only have a handful of bottles.
Sometimes simply called DRC or “the Domaine”, Domaine de la Romanée-Conti is the most famous name in Burgundy, if not the entire world of fine wine. The Grand Cru site, from which it takes its name, tops Wine-Searcher’s list of The World’s Top 50 Most Expensive Wines. Any one of their wines would be the crowning glory of any collection, offering an experience that many only dream of. Based in Vosne-Romanée, their holdings include the mythical La Tâche and Romanée-Conti, over half of Romanée-Saint-Vivant, one third of Grands Échézeaux and half of Richebourg, not to mention vineyards in Corton, Le Montrachet and Batard-Montrachet. Mind-numbingly low yields from their old vines exacerbate the scarcity, making availability a perpetually fleeting thing.
Wine Critic Neal Martin says Domaine de la Romanée-Conti’s “wines are so rare, sought after and let us be frank, so prohibitively expensive; that mere utterance is as close as most people get… Their raison d'etre is to offer pleasure, these are bottles surfeit with enjoyment, surfeit with profundity.” He notes that the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay produced there offer “finesse, balance, poise, refinement” and a capacity to “age like no other wine I can think of. Quite simply, they have an unerring ability to maintain the freshness and poise over decades.” He concludes that those lucky enough to get their hands on a bottle “may be in for an unforgettable experience.”
