ABOUT THE DOMAIN
The mere mention of Romanée-Conti evokes excellence and a dream for any wine lover. With a rich history dating back to 1760, this plot has gone through the vicissitudes of time, from the hands of Prince Louis-François de Bourbon-Conti to the tribulations of the French Revolution, before obtaining its illustrious name. Under the leadership of visionary individuals such as Jacques-Marie Duvault Blochet, and now Henry-Frédéric Roch, Lalou Bize-Leroy and Aubert de Villaine, the Domaine de la Romanée-Conti (DRC) has established itself as the jewel of the Burgundy. Although the world remains fascinated by the Romanée-Conti vintage, the estate has always been committed to maintaining exemplary quality for all of its wines, reflecting their devotion to biodynamics and meticulous winemaking. The limited yields and the selective nature of their production, such as the choice not to vintage Montrachet in certain years, attest to their commitment to excellence at all costs.
ABOUT THE CUVÉE
La Tâche, although now under the umbrella of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, has an equally fascinating history. Its monastic origins, followed by tumultuous changes of ownership after the Revolution, reflect the history of many Burgundy vineyards. However, what really sets La Tâche apart is the magic that takes place at each stage of its production: unparalleled care of the vines, controlled yields and unfailing patience during the harvest. This dedication is reflected in the glass – an opulent wine with intoxicating aromas of dark fruits, spices and truffle. Each sip offers a complexity and depth that seems endless, all wrapped in exceptional elegance and finesse. Even in vintages known to be difficult, La Tâche stands out, attesting to the resilience and exceptional character of this wine. It is a vintage that never ceases to amaze, year after year.
