Le Montrachet / Romanee-Conti; Domaine de la
Domaine Romanée-Conti (DRC) is the exemplary Burgundian wine producer. Its 25 ha of Grand Cru vineyards cluster around the village of Vosne Romanée with part of the proprietorship including two of Burgundy’s greatest monopoles, La Tache and Romanée Conti. The six red and one white Grand Cru wines are often transcendental, each single vineyard distinctive (a Batard Montrachet is also made but not released commercially). In 2009, DRC also released a Corton Grand Cru from vineyards that they leased from Domaine Florent Prince de Mérode in Clos du Roi, Les Bressandes and Les Renades. In exceptional years, the 1er Cru Cuvée Duvault-Blochet is also produced, comprising of wine from young Pinot Noir vines selected from the various vineyards. As a stable of fine wines they are unmatched in the Cote d’Or or indeed elsewhere (please see chart of the Domaine’s holdings). DRC is the largest proprietor of Grand Cru vineyards in Vosne Romanée, an incredible accomplishment in Burgundy where inheritance tax and Napoleonic inheritance laws can leave domaines fragmented and financially non-viable.
