The scarcest, most expensive - and frequently the best - wine in the world… This is the purest, most aristocratic and most intense example of Pinot noir you could possibly imagine. Not only nectar - a yardstick with which to judge all other Burgundies.
Romanée-Conti is situated within the commune of Vosne-Romanée and is a monopole of the winery Société Civile du Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, which takes its name after this vineyard. Romanée-Conti has been called "one of the greatest wines of the world and the most perfect as well as the most expensive of Burgundy ... with a forceful bouquet of violet mixed with a scent of cherry, a lively and profound ruby robe, a suaveness of exceptional finesse." Yields are very low at an average of 25 hl/ha (the maximum allowed for Grand Cru is 35 hl/ha); it takes the produce of three vines to produce one bottle of Romanée-Conti. Wine from the vineyard is among the most sought after, and expensive, in the world. In October 2010, 77 bottles sold for a total of US$750,609 (about $9,748 each) at auction.
