2004 Domaine de la Romanee Conti Romanee-Conti Burgundy 

Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, or DRC as it is commonly known, is easily Burgundy's most world renown and most collectible wines in the world. Based in the Burgundy village of Vosne-Romanée, the Domaine makes wines from eight different grand cru vineyards that span the length of the Côte d'Or. The most famous comes from the eponymous Romanée-Conti vineyard, and on average is the most expensive wine in the world.

The Domaine makes mostly Pinot Noir-based wines from 28 hectares (69 acres) of grand cru vineyard – represented alongside Romanée-Conti are La Tache, Romanée-Saint-Vivant and Richebourg in Vosne-Romanée; Corton-Bressandes, Corton Clos du Roi and Corton Renardes in Corton; and Échezeaux and Grands Échezeaux. Le Montrachet and Batard-Montrachet in the Côte de Beaune make DRC's only Chardonnay-based white wines.

Of course, La Romanée-Conti is the Domaine's most famous asset, and the amount of wine made from less than 2ha (5 acres) of land amounts to just 6000 bottles a year. The vineyard has a long history, dating back to the Abbey of Saint-Vivant in the 13th Century. It took on the Romanée name in 1631, and the Conti in 1760. In 1869, it was obtained by Jacques-Marie Duvault-Blochet, who left it to his great grandchildren upon his death. It was then that the Société-Civile du Domaine de la Romanée-Conti was established to avoid Napoleonic inheritance laws.

Today, DRC is owned in part by the de Villaine family and in part by the Leroy family. Aubert de Villaine is the figurehead of the company now – although it was famously run by Lalou Bize-Leroy for a time, until a dispute saw her ousted from control. The Leroy family is now represented by Henri-Frederic Roch.

Burghound 2004 Domaine de la Romanee Conti Romanee-Conti Burgundy - 94 pts! A supremely beautiful if very reserved nose with a stunning lange of spice notes, floral notes, particularly violets, red and black berry fruit aromas plus nuances of earth, game and smoke combine to perfectly complement the equally reserved, pure and unbelievably precise and pure medium full flavors underpinned by sophisticated tannins and huge length. One of the aspects that I most admire about a great RC is that while other wines have class, Romanee-Conti defines the term. The other aspect that I find to be perhaps the most remarkable of all is the wine's ability to aggregate attributes unlike any other. Like the '04 La Tache, this isn't the greatest vintage of Romanee-Conti I have ever tasted but it is one of the very finest in terms of the delicacy and harmony of expression.
