Romanee Conti DRC Magnum 1966
La Romanée-Conti Grand Cru is a monopole vineyard of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti and is often singled out as Burgundy’s greatest terroir. Originally called Cros des Cloux, this hallowed vineyard has a long and illustrious history, but its more modern era began with the first new vintage bottling from DRC in 1952, after replanting of the vines in 1947-48. This is an exceptionally rare magnum from the incredible 1966 vintage. Allen Meadows of Burghound scored it 96 points and Jancis Robinson gave it 20/20 – remarkably high praise, indeed.
