Domaine de la Romanée Conti
Domaine de la Romanée Conti is arguably Burgundy’s most famous wine estate. It makes its grand cru wines from 25 hectares of vines.
Its wines are produced in extremely small quantities and therefore are responsible for some of the biggest prices on the market.

Only natural yeasts are used in producing the La Tache 1961 and aging is done in 100% new oak.
WinePrices states that La Tache is characterised by “finesse, balance and refinement” and that the wines “have the ability to age while increasing in character and value”.
