Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, or ‘DRC’ as it is widely referred to, is by far the most prestigious estate in Burgundy. The Domaine constantly appears in the list of the world’s most expensive wines and DRC bottles are often purchased for between £2,000 and £15,000, depending on the vintage.
For white wines, Domaine Leflaive is arguably the most commonly known. It is a family estate converted to biodynamic principles by the pioneer Anne-Claude Leflaive. Some of the estate’s wines can sell for more than £350 per bottle. Olivier Leflaive started his own negociant winemaking house, keeping it separate from the family business and specialising in high-end white wines.
