Domaine de la Romanee-ContiBurgundy......The world's greatest wine! On the hills that embrace them, they occupy the most favoured sites in the heart of the Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits, where the soils and weather conditions are the most auspicious. It gives them a special ability to absorb and finesse the climatic vagaries with which the region is not lacking and allows them to attain, year after year and more than any of the other vineyards that encircle them, a complete and harmonious ripening.
These are the Grands Crus, exceptional vineyards that enjoy vast respect and which represent in both red and white wines, barely 1% of the surface and less than 1% of Burgundy's production. This is the mission the Domaine sets itself: from generation to generation and guided by a restless pursuit of excellence to effect and perpetuate the means to make their Grands Crus, the greatest in Burgundy:
Romanée-Conti, La Tache, Richebourg, Romanée-St-Vivant, Grands-Echezeaux, Echezeaux, Montrachet and since 2009 Corton - producing wines of a quality that strive of their potential and their reputation. The terms of reference in this work are both simple and complex but entail as a priority.
