Lot presentation

Grands-Echezeaux Grand Cru Domaine de la Romanée-Conti 2017

The wine

The Grand-Echézeaux wines produced by Domaine de la Romanée Conti are characterised by their lively, steady, bright colour. A grand cru located alongside Echézeaux, it is even more complex and suited to aging than its younger brother. It has a very aromatic nose of red and black berries mixed with notes of oak and spices. With their excellent concentration, great power and fully body, these racy, complex wines represent some of the best the appellation has to offer. But it would be advisable to wait between 15 and 30 years to allow it to present its full aromatic complexity.

About the Producer La Romanée-Conti

The name Romanée-Conti is enough to make all wine lovers worldwide tremble in awe. In 1760, Prince Louis-Francois de Bourbon-Conti bought a piece of land in Vosne-Romanée, planted by the predecessors of Saint-Vivant, before dying in 1776. It was confiscated during the Revolution and sold to the highest bidder in 1794. Then the 1.8 hectare plot was renamed Romanée-Conti and its name was given to the most prestigious domaines of Burgundy. In 1879, Jacques-Marie Duvault Blochet bought this property and it is Henry-Frédéric Roch, Lalou Bize-Leroy and its director, Aubert de Villaine who own it today. Domaine de la Romanée-Conti (DRC) has 25 hectares of vines in Vosne, mainly in the grand crus of the commune: La Tâche, Romanée-Saint-Vivant, Richebourg, Echezeaux, Grands-Echézeaux and of course La Romanée-Conti. In the Côte de Beaune, the domaine has recently acquired three farms in Corton, in addition to its legendary Montrachet and Bâtard-Montrachet vines (small, non-marketed production). Although La Romanée-Conti is at the heart of the domaine, the domaine's other grand crus are irreproachable due to the work carried out both in the vineyard (biodynamic) and in the winery (where whole grape harvests are vinified). The yields are extremely low and some wines such as Montrachet are not dated yearly as the quantities are too low (this was the case in 1992 and 2016). Its price clearly confirms its greatness.
