Most serious wine collectors have a pretty decent working knowledge of DRC and its famous wines. However, sometimes it’s fun just to revisit all the little things that you thought you already knew. Wine Searcher has a great article worth reading on random DRC knowledge this week.
Here’s a great example from the article:
“The domaine only produces between 6000 and 8000 cases per year, all of it on precious allocations; La Romanée-Conti rarely yields more than a paltry 500 cases and averages 450 cases. Scarcity means that demand vastly outweighs supply. Prices are high on release – though not as high as they could be, partly because the domaine wants its wines to be enjoyed by consumers, rather than traded by investors – and continue to increase. The 2005 Romanée-Conti currently sells for up to $20,000 per bottle.”
