An outstanding collection of wines from Domaine de La Romanée-Conti featuring highly exceptional coveted cases - all in their original wooden boxes - spanning 1990 through 2009. All the wines were acquired on release directly from the Domaine and cellared in professional temperature-controlled storage, until being transported in June 2022 through a dedicated air shipment directly to Crown Wine Cellars in Hong Kong. All the cases were sealed with the original bands from the Domaine until inspection by Sotheby’s specialists.

Romanée Conti 2009 DRC (3 BT)It is interesting that in 1850 Romanée-Conti was estate bottled - then this ceased for a period and restarted in 1911. Thus, the essence of Romanée-Conti was captured but, in my view, never tamed! It is a wild, extraordinary wine, unpredictable and constantly mutating as it matures, but always true to its indubitably great self. The care lavished on Romanée-Conti is shown to all the wines of the Domaine, but the breed and refinement in the taste of Romanée-Conti would point to an indefinable "something extra" in this 1.80 ha plot. - Serena Sutcliffe, MW
La Tâche 2009 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti (6 BT)75% of the vineyard is constituted from grafts of the Romanée-Conti vineyard. The vineyard is a monopole, the Domaine acquiring what is, today, the La Tâche vineyard in 1933 and henceforth recognized as AC La Tâche in 1936. Why do I love La Tâche? Well, plums and roses and deep, plush velvet fruit is the reason. The texture is always thicker than Romanée-Conti. - Serena Sutcliffe, MW
Richebourg 2009 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti (6 BT)The Domaine owns 50% of this vineyard. Aged in barrels purchased from cooper François Frères, as all the DRC wines are, they benefit from a superb position in the vineyard and, in the great vintages, Richebourg is like velvet come to life. - Serena Sutcliffe, MW
Romanée St. Vivant 2009 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti (6 BT)The Domaine owns just over one-half of this vineyard which it purchased from the Marey-Monge family in 1988, having previously managed the vineyard for the family since 1966. The vineyard holdings were replanted over a number of years and the wines have greater concentration, less sharp tannins and more fat. They continue to set the highest standard for the appellation. - Serena Sutcliffe, MW
Grands Echézeaux 2009 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti (6 BT)The Domaine owns fully one-third of this vineyard. Along with La Tâche, Grands Echézeaux is the other vineyard where the Domaine is practising biodynamic viticulture. Density of plantation of the vines has also increased here, as well as in the Romanée-Conti vineyard from 10,000 to 15,000 vines per hectare. - Serena Sutcliffe, MW
Echézeaux 2009 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti (6 BT)The Domaine owns one-seventh of this vineyard. The rock structure that underpins Echézeaux is immensely complicated, with lower Bathonian and upper Bajocian limestones in constant interplay. The vineyard is situated very high for a Grand Cru, but the soil has good pebbles and is deep enough to produce outstanding wines. - Serena Sutcliffe, MW
Vosne Romanée, Cuvée Duvault-Blochet 2009 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti (3 BT)
Montrachet 2000 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti (6 BT)First produced by the Domaine in 1964, but the first vintage to be released was 1965. Partially based on soil analysis by the agronomist Claude Bourguignon, the Domaine has reintroduced ploughing with horses in both Le Montrachet and Romanée-Conti. This small holding in the famed vineyard produces an average of only 250 cases of this extraordinary powerful and complex wine which is keenly sought after by collectors and creates an atmosphere of excitement whenever it appears at auction. - Serena Sutcliffe, MW
