ABOUT THE DOMAIN
The simple name of Romanée-Conti resonates like an ode to viticultural prestige, arousing emotion and admiration among wine connoisseurs around the world. The story begins in the 18th century when Prince Louis-François de Bourbon-Conti appropriated this emblematic plot of Vosne-Romanée. Although the winds of the revolution almost dispersed his heritage, this piece of land, renamed Romanée-Conti, would become the jewel of Burgundian estates. Today, the estate extends majestically over 25 hectares of vines, each plot of which is carefully cultivated, reflecting the excellence of its terroir. If Romanée-Conti remains the brightest star in the constellation, the other wines, thanks to hard and passionate work, are just as exceptional. Limited yields and a biodynamic approach make each bottle precious, making Domaine de la Romanée-Conti a living legend.

Each sip is a celebration of power and elegance, revealing a mosaic of aromas, from the sweetest fruits to the deepest musk. It is a wine that never ceases to surprise, evolving magnificently over time, sometimes requiring decades to reveal its potential. The Richebourg from Domaine de la Romanée Conti, with its phenomenal concentration and meticulous elaboration, is the reflection of ancestral know-how. A fascinating detail: its vines held up against the onslaught of phylloxera until 1946, testifying to the resilience and exceptionality of this terroir.
