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

Popped and poured. Stunning nose of rich black fruits, asian spices, cola and a spice dust texture. The palate is turning to velvet, with lush cherries, mocha, and truffles. It lacks a little energy on the mid-palate. This isn't the most detailed La Tache, nor do I expect that it will live a long life, but it is just delicious right now.

Good full red. Tight nose hints at cassis, violet, meat and truffle. Firmly built, suave and penetrating; not especially pliant or sweet but harmonious acidity gives it good shape. Finishes with firm tannic spine and a suggestion of slightly funky wo... Stephen Tanzer. A Pinot Noir wine from Burgundy in France. 2000 Romanee Conti, Domaine de la Richebourg Grand Cru 750ml

Quite deeply colored with the classic La Tâche nose of dried rose petals plus a fantastic array of aromas and spices too numerous to even try to describe that lead to fine, detailed and beautifully textured flavors and terrific length.

Medium red. Aromas of black cherry, currant, tobacco, Oriental spices and nutty oak. Sweeter and thicker than the Echezeaux, with a more floral character. Ripe, harmonious acidity frames and carries the fruit... Stephen Tanzer. A Pinot Noir wine from Burgundy in France. 2000 Romanee Conti, Domaine de la Grands Echezeaux Grand Cru 750ml

92 points, Burghound November 2007 Notably ripe, indeed even notes of torrefaction and roast espresso beans that also reflect intense floral aromas precede big, robust, forceful austere black fruit flavors that have slightly drying tannins

Medium red. Ripe, aromatic nose combines plum, redcurrant, tobacco, lead pencil, mint and oak spices. Lush, ripe, smooth and spicy, with fairly full-blown sweetness and texture for this wine. In a gentle, oaky style, with very ripe red fruit flavors. Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Pinot Noir wine from Burgundy in France. 2000 Domaine de la Romanee Conti Echezeaux 750ml
