Description to Romanee-Conti AOC
The Grand Cru location is in the community Vosne-Romanée in the Burgundian area Cote d'Or below the Grand Cru location La Romanée, It is the sole owner (monopoly) of the Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, The vineyard encompasses just under two hectares of vineyards with a 3% slope in 260 at 280 meters above sea level on loamy-chalky rendina soil with a high proportion of clay and limestone rubble. The vineyard was replanted in 1945, based on vines from the Grand Cru location La Tâche, Up to this point the vines in both locations were ungrafted and were against the phylloxera in the so-called Kultural method fought with carbon disulphide. Both locations were then replanted with refined vines, and the first wines were only produced in 1952. The mainly from Pinot Noir pressed red wine with small portions of Pinot Beurot ( Pinot gris ) and Pinot Liébault (and theoretically too 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.
