Located in the wonderfully named Rue du Temps Perdu, Domaine de la Romanée-Conti is a Burgundy institution. The Domaine’s co-directors are Bertrand de Villaine, nephew of Aubert de Villaine and Perrine Fénal, daughter of Lalou Bize-Leroy.
There are nine grand cru vineyards. In addition, a Vosne-Romanée Premier Cru is released in certain years, made from voluntarily declassified grapes. Corney & Barrow has been the Domaine’s exclusive UK agent since 1991.
The red wine grands crus are Corton, Echézeaux, Grands Echézeaux, Romanée-St-Vivant, Richebourg and two ‘Monopoles’, solely owned by the Domaine – La Tâche and Romanée-Conti. The grand cru Chardonnay sites are Corton-Charlemagne and Montrachet. In addition, some Bâtard-Montrachet is produced for private consumption.
Following the confiscation of the vineyards of the Prince de Conti during the French Revolution, the Domaine was acquired by Monsieur Duvault-Blochet in 1869. La Tâche was bought in 1933. Romanée-Saint-Vivant was managed from 1966 and purchased outright in 1988. In addition to owning the vineyards of La Romanée-Conti and La Tâche in their entirety, the Domaine owns half of Richebourg, over half of Romanée-St-Vivant, a third of Grands Échézeaux and a seventh of Échézeaux.
As for white wines, beside the Domaine’s Montrachet, a Corton-Charlemagne was added to the line-up in the 2019 vintage. Made from vines leased from Domaine Bonneau du Martray, this sits alongside the red Corton, which has been produced since the 2009 vintage.
