Based in the Burgundy village of Vosne-Romanée, the domaine sells wines from eight different grand cru vineyards that span the length of the Côte d'Or. The most famous comes from the eponymous Romanée-Conti vineyard, and on average is the most expensive wine in the world. The domaine predominately produces Pinot Noir-based wines from 28 hectares (69 acres) of grand cru vineyard. Alongside Romanée-Conti are La Tâche, Romanée-Saint-Vivant and Richebourg in Vosne-Romanée; plus Échezeaux and Grands Échezeaux bottlings. Fruit from Corton-Bressandes, Corton Clos du Roi and Corton Renardes is combined in a single Corton Grand Cru red. There are three white (Chardonnay) wines made. Only one of these, the Montrachet is made widely avilable. A Bâtard-Montrachet and a Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Nuits are not publically distributed. Of course, La Romanée-Conti is the domaine's most famous asset, and the amount of wine made from less than 2ha (5 acres) of land amounts to just 6000 bottles a year. The vineyard has a long history, dating back to the Abbey of Saint-Vivant in the 13th Century. It took on the Romanée name in 1631, and the Conti in 1760.Today, DRC is owned in part by the de Villaine family and in part by the Leroy family. Aubert de Villaine is the figurehead of the company now – although it was famously run by Lalou Bize-Leroy for a time, until a dispute saw her ousted from control.\u003cbr\u003e","published_at":"2023-04-13T18:56:02-04:00","created_at":"2023-02-10T15:24:40-05:00","vendor":"CaskCartel.com","type":"Wine","tags":["Country_France","NK0702","other_french wine","Other_Wine","Producer_Domaine de la Romanee Conti","Region_Burgundy","Source_Hedonism0123","Type_Red Wine","Varietal_Pinot Noir"],"price":1798999,"price_min":1798999,"price_max":1798999,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":42774876094602,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"2012 | Domaine de la Romanee Conti | Corton (Magnum)","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":1798999,"weight":24494,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[],"quantity_rule":{"min":1,"max":null,"increment":1}}],"images":["\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/60_4f19f46a-e38d-4405-b8d4-1103465db167.jpg?v=1676060726"],"featured_image":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/60_4f19f46a-e38d-4405-b8d4-1103465db167.jpg?v=1676060726","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":"2012 | Domaine de la Romanee Conti | Corton (Magnum) at CaskCartel.com","id":24212855226506,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.6,"height":1000,"width":600,"src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/60_4f19f46a-e38d-4405-b8d4-1103465db167.jpg?v=1676060726"},"aspect_ratio":0.6,"height":1000,"media_type":"image","src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/60_4f19f46a-e38d-4405-b8d4-1103465db167.jpg?v=1676060726","width":600}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"\u003ch2\u003eRed Wine: 2012 | Domaine de la Romanee Conti | Corton (Magnum)\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eRipe, plush and spicy, with the raspberry character following through in the mouth; boasts superb volume given shape by a sound mineral spine and complex soil tones.
