Domaine de la Romanee-Conti (DRC) is Burgundy's most famous estate, producing all grand cru wines from 25 hectares of vines. The wines are the largest portion of each of the grands crus; Romanee-Conti, La Tache, Richebourg, Romanee-Saint-Vivant, Grands Echezeaux, Echezeaux, and Montrachet, of which both Romanee Conti and La Tache are monopoles. The ethereal wines have become the most sought-after and expensive wines in the world and mature vintages of fine provenance are difficult to find. 1988 was a classic vintage with tremendous aging potential.

Mature aromas of jam, spice and violets lead to amazingly powerful yet velvety medium-bodied flavors that are supported by firm but softening tannins which the extract buffers on the delicious, long and mouth-coating if ever-so-slightly warm finish. This mildly rustic effort has reached full maturity. Tasted multiple times with consistent notes. – Allen Meadows 93/100 (2017
