Corton Grand Cru Domaine de la Romanée-Conti 2010

The wine

2008 was an eventful year. That year, it was announced that the Domaine de la Romanée Conti was taking over the three grands crus, owned by the Prince Florent de Mérode heirs, situated on the Corton hills. At the end of the leasing contract, the domain gained 1.2 hectares of Corton Bressandes, 0.57 hectares of Clos du Roi and 0.51 hectares of Renardes. These parcels are situated at the heart of historical appellation that includes a large number of old vines. Produced under the auspices of this prestigious domain from the 2009 harvest, and the wines have been commercialised since 2012. The Corton cuvée from Romanée-Conti continues to progress and has similar level to the other cuvées of the domain. The bouquet already evokes the floral complexity, also found in the wines from Vosne. The palate is delicate, fresh and pure. This wine can be aged for 5 to 20 years before being tasted.

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.
