ABOUT THE DOMAIN
Domaine de la Romanée-Conti is a name which, simply stating it, transports any wine lover into a reverie full of admiration. From the prestigious origins marked by the acquisition of Prince Louis-François de Bourbon-Conti to the continued involvement of passionate families like that of Jacques-Marie Duvault Blochet, this Burgundian property has always been the symbol of excellence. With 25 hectares carefully distributed among the most envied wines of Burgundy, the DRC is the guardian of vineyards of inestimable value. Despite the incomparable reputation of the Romanée-Conti plot, each wine from the estate is treated with the same dedication and rigor. This quest for excellence is evident in the respect for the vines, cultivated biodynamically, and in the precision of the winemaking.
