Domaine de la Romanee-Conti 2009

Domaine de la Romanée-Conti is possibly the most famous name in Burgundy and produces some the world’s most sought after wine. Made exclusively from pinot noir grapes from very small parcels of land in Burgundy, D.R.C. and its equally luxurious stable mate, La Tache, are often described as the greatest of all Burgundy reds.

Released a year later than other wines from the region (D.R.C. are only now releasing their 2009 vintage) the latest batch has yielded 538 cases of D.R.C. at a cost £5250 for three bottles, in bond and therefore exclusive of VAT, and 1828 of La Tache which will sell for £3250 for six bottles, in bond.
The La Tache 2009 has been described as being superbly perfumed, with hints of Darjeeling tea, rose, cloves and mace. The D.R.C. has more minerality and is a little more guarded but will gradually open up with age.
