Romanée-Conti

The Grand Cru location is in the community Vosne-Romanée in the Burgundian area Côte d'Or below the Grand Cru location La Romanée, It is the sole possession (monopolies) of the Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, The vineyard covers just under two hectares of vineyards with 3% slope in 260 with 280 meters above sea level on loamy-limy Rendzinaboden with high clay content and limestone scree. The vineyard was re-planted in 1945, as the basis served vines from the Grand Cru location La Tche, In both layers, the vines were ungrafted and were against the phylloxera in the so-called Kultural method combated with carbon disulfide. Both layers were then replanted with grafted vines, the first wines were then produced only in 1952. The mainly out Pinot Noir pressed red wine with small portions Pinot Beurot ( Pinot Gris ) and Pinot Liébault (as well as theoretically Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc ) is one of the best and most expensive in the world, It only develops its potential after 15 years at the earliest and can be stored for decades.
