Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, located in Vosne-Romanée, is one of the most prestigious vineyard sites in Burgundy, France. The domaine boasts seven Grand Cru properties, and the two monopolies (meaning they are owned and operated by the domaine itself) La Romanée-Conti and La Tâche are considered the finest vineyards in all of Burgundy. The other five - Richebourg, Romanée-St-Vivant, Grands Ėchezaux, Ėchezaux and Montrachet  (which overlaps with Chassagne) - are also among the upper echelon. With the exception of the Chardonny-only Montrachet, Domaine de La Romanée-Conti is known for producing exceptional, rare reds from Pinot Noir, prized for their structured fruit, perfume and longevity.  The vineyard had already been named Romanée since the 13th century when it was first acquired by the de Croonembourg family. The hyphenation is derived from a 1760 bidding war between Madame de Pompadour, Louis XV and Louis François ler de Bourbon, Prince de Conti. You can guess who won.  These vineyard are on slopes facing east and south-east for optimal grape-ripening exposure, with iron-rich limestone and marl soils. Some of the vines are quite old by Burgundy standards, up to 50 years, which adds to the power of the wines. The small production wines are from vineyards that are organically cultivated, with yields kept low.  Read less

Vintage: 1999 02/21/2009

The medium to dark ruby-colored 1999 Romanee-Conti is mind-boggling. It has a hugely expressive nose of super-ripe black cherries, candied plums, and violets. Full-bodied and possessing a magnificent breadth of sweet, penetrating fruits, this is an u... Robert Parker.

Vintage: 1999 04/03/2009

Saturated ruby-red. Perfumed, fruit-driven aromas of black cherry and cassis. Thick, concentrated, enticingly bright fruit and spice flavors. This has the density and extract of a top '98. Finishes with substantial but ripe tannins. An impressive ear... Robert Parker. A Pinot Noir wine from Burgundy in France. 1999 Domaine de la Romanee Conti Echezeaux 750ml

The medium to dark ruby-colored 1999 La Tache has sweet, tangy raspberry, black currant, candied cherry, leather, and spice aromas. This medium to full-bodied wine is harmonious, refined, and powerful. It is expansive, magnificently delineated, and f... Robert Parker.

Vintage: 1999 02/21/2009

Super quality in this blockbuster of a Pinot Noir, with lovely blackberries, wild berries and blueberries. But this full-bodied red is tough and angular, and a bit woody. Needs years in the cellar to show it all, but loads of ripe fruit, terroir and ... Wine Spectator.

Vintage: 1999 02/21/2009

In 1999, the Domaine de la Romanee-Conti did something that it has never done before, producing a Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru. This wine was made from a second harvest that took place a few days after the initial harvest in La Tache. The wine is medium to ... Robert Parker.
