There is no other producer that can match the gravitas of this hallowed domaine nestled in the heart of Burgundy's Vosne-Romanee. Bottles and cases of DRC are among the most sought-after in the world and consistently top the list of sales-by-value in wine auctions across the globe.
As is the case with all great wines, the real magic is born in the vineyards, and DRC boasts some of the most coveted parcels in Burgundy, including sole ownership of the 4.4-acre Romanee-Conti Grand Cru, probably the most famous vineyard in the world. A combination of quality, reputation and exclusivity means that demand always exceeds supply of their outstanding wines. Burgundy is the land of scarcity, producing a fraction of the output of other regions like Bordeaux, and DRC is no exception. Their precise, traditional approach keeps yields intentionally low in order to create fruit with exceptional concentration.
Today we are pleased to offer what is the undisputed jewel in the DRC crown - a rare, banded, three-bottle original wooden case of Romanee-Conti. And while every bottle that DRC makes is highly coveted, it's especially true for the Romanee-Conti. Production barely exceeds 1,000 bottles in a given vintage, many of which have long been tucked away in the cellars of those fortunate enough to receive an allocation.
Having been bought by our client on direct allocation in the US, and stored in impeccable conditions, the provenance of this US strip labelled 3-pack is without question.
The case will be arriving on our next shipment, due later this Spring.

Deep, dark red. Darker on the nose than La Tâche, exuding aromas of boysenberry, black raspberry, violet, brown spices and smoky minerality. Like liquid velvet on the palate but with its purple and black fruit flavors energized by pungent, sappy minerality. The rising, utterly bracing finish shows great breadth and extraordinary noble tannins. This knockout is wonderfully full and thick yet somehow weightless owing to its outstanding mineral energy. An amazing showing today, but this supremely elegant wine is just at the beginning of a 30+-year life in bottle. Bertrand de Villaine noted that Romanée-Conti is typically a wine of aromas while La Tâche is more about the mouth, but not today.
