The Romanee-Conti wine appellation in the Burgundy region of France is without doubt one of the the most prestigious and one of the smallest appellations in the entire country at only 1.8 hectares - smaller even than the other monopole Chateau Grillet in the northern Rhone but larger than La Romanee at only .84 hectares.
One of the secrets to the quality of the wine is the very fine clay that only exists within the limits of this appellation and which provides ideal drainage for the Pinot vines. Of course, skilful winemaking is also required to produce a wine of this quality!
