The legendary Vosne-Romanée winemaking estate


The Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, often shortened to "DRC", is one of the most celebrated Burgundy wine estates. Founded in 1942 by Edmond Gaudin de Villaine, the Côte de Nuits vineyard is actually much older than that. Managed by the Benedictine Monks of Saint-Vivant during the 13th century, it was then bought by the Croonembourg family around the 17th century. They were the ones who renamed the tiny parcel and came up with "La Romanée" (it used to be known as "Le Cloux des Cinq Journaux").

The grapevines were later sold to the Prince Louis-François de Bourbon-Conti by André de Croonembourg, in 1760. Hence its newfound moniker of "Romanée-Conti". Confiscated during the French Revolution, the estate fell into the hands of Gabriel-Julien Ouvrard in 1819, and Jacques-Marie Duvault-Blochet (the ancestor of the de Villaine and Leroy families) 50 years later. Since 1911, the 25 hectares vineyard has been managed by the two families: the successors of Edmond de Villaine and Henri Leroy.

The two winemakers, Aubert de Villaine and Henry-Frédéric Roch (as well as Lalou Bize-Leroy, from 1974 to 1992), were the ones taking care of the DRC estate. At least, before the death of Henry-Frédéric in 2018, who left his seat to Perrine Fenal (Lalou's daughter). Throughout the centuries, this Vosne-Romanée wine estate has become a true legend in Burgundy. A reputation with a cost, since its prices have skyrocketed.
