Wine Critic Reviews:

The Montrachet delivered exotic scents of apricot, pineapple, citronella and honey, still marked by oak. On the palate, it was rich and creamy, unfolding in waves, with fine structure and a long mineral finish. As perfect a young white Burgundy as I have ever tasted.

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.
Producer DRC: Domaine de la Romanee-Conti is one of the most well-established and reputable wine producers in the world. It is famous for producing only a small amount of each brand, and it takes a considerable investment to own even a bottle. Every wine enthusiast wishes to visit their legendary location, but only a few of them ever get the chance to, making it a prestigious achievement. To this day, their representatives nurture the noble soil of the winery and the vines themselves using old-fashioned, traditional methods - primarily by hand, using the horse and plow. There is no substitute for direct and loving care of your fruits. Domaine de la Romanee-Conti uses only natural yeasts, staying away from pesticides and anything that could ruin the sacred, pristine taste of their fresh, supple grapes.
