Domaine de la Romanée Conti (DRC) is co-owned by the Leroy/Roch and de Villaine families. The Domaine is today run by Aubert de Villaine and Henri-Frederic Roch. The domaine has 25 hectares of vineyards, all Grand Crus. As well as the 1.8 hectare monopole La Romanée Conti, the Domaine purchased its other monopoly, La Tâche, in 1933, to add to the significant holdings purchased during the 19th and 20th centuries, the grand crus of Richebourg, Romanée St Vivant, Grands-Echezeaux, Echezeaux and Le Montrachet. The Domaine is now the largest owners of each of the red wine grand crus.
Facing east and south-east, the organically cultivated vineyards lie on very well drained slopes. The soil is iron-rich limestone on a base of rock and marl. Five hectares in La Tâche and Grands Échézeaux are cultivated biodynamically, where the vines are only treated with natural preparations and according to a strict lunar timetable. The yields are extraordinarily low.
