DRC

No it is not a hip-hop group, it’s the single most sought after domain in all of Burgundy, and all of the world for that matter. The Domaine de la Romanee Conti has long produced some of the finest Grand Cru Burgundy, but lately its wines have reached dizzyingly high prices. These are wines that require a bit of age on them to show their full potential. You can get a glimpse of that after just a handful of years in lesser vintages, but it’s still going to cost you. How much? Consider the following prices for DRC’s low, medium and high priced bottlings in a good vintage, a great vintage and a mature vintage!

DRC Echezeaux: 2004 - $700 2009 - $900 1990 - $1,200

DRC La Tache: 2004 - $1,700 2009 - $3,200 1990 - $6,000

DRC Romanee Conti: 2004 - $11,000 2009 - $14,000 1990 - $18,000

You wanted bucket list wines, now you got them!

  • This is a list that makes you drooling :)
    From this list I have tasted two wines in the past: the 1989 Unico Riserva and the 2001 Le Pin. I have also tasted DRC Romanée Conti before, but the 2003 vintage. Personally I would like to add to this list the following wines (all ready to drink but may improve over time): Masseto 2001,Pingus 1999, Screaming Eagle 1997 & 2007, and Colgin IX Propr.Red Estate 2002. Making a short-list is never easy and I am sure I am leaving out some wines that would easily make it on the list, but this is what comes to mind so far. If you got the money, ENJOY !!!

  • I find that one of lifes ironies as you reach your 50's is that you finally can afford to buy great wines, though at great prices, only to be told they will be at their peak between 2022 and 2034, by which time you might be six feet under!

    Certainly wouldn't be MY "bucket list" wines, but this is why we all have our own individual palates . . . besides, I've had all those, though perhaps not in these specific vintages.
