The monopole Grand Cru vineyard of La Romanée-Conti, owned entirely by DRC, is less than 4.5 acres of the absolute best Pinot Noir in the world. Only 450 cases of this wine are produced per year meaning that the demand for this wine vastly outweighs supply. This vineyard was first noted for its magnificent wines as far back as the 1300’s and is the pinnacle of Pinot: elegant, silky, pure, and yet fully capable of aging for over half a century. Given 100 points by the Wine Advocate, “The 2016 Romanée-Conti Grand Cru is a worthy successor to the profound 2015, wafting from the glass with aromas of wild berries, violets, peony, dark chocolate, cinnamon and exotic spices. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, ample and satiny, with an ineffable sense of completeness, searing concentration without weight, a vibrant, indeed animating line of acidity, and a long, expansive finish that concludes with a judicious touch of mouthwatering bitterness. Wines like this are the foundation of the Domaine de la Romanée-Conti's reputation.
The 2016 La Romanée-Conti shows all the breed and refinement expected from this tiny parcel of perfect soil.
