Democratizing the very best of burgundy.

We work with a few trusted suppliers and are adamant about following up on their sourcing and storage. There is no point investing in a Ferrari that has the engine of a Ford Festiva

Not for the faint of heart (or the light in the wallet,) banded OWC (original wood container) Domaine Romaine de la Conti is the unicorn of the wine world; the rarest, most expensive, and often the best wine on the planet, bar none. Bounty Hunter Rare Wine and Spirits is delighted to announce acquiring limited stock of these rare treasures. While normally sourced directly for select clientele, Bounty Hunter is expanding the offer of these wines to a wider audience as demand has continued to increase over the years. Don’t blink, they might not be available for long.

Bounty Hunter Rare Wine and Spirits has grown significantly from their humble origins in the mid-1990’s as catalog and phone sales purveyor who helped usher in a new era of renown for California cult classics such as Screaming Eagle and Hundred Acre. The roots of the company are forged by strong relationships with top producers and the uncanny ability to find the rarest of the rare. The tradition continues and has expanded to include top Burgundy, Bordeaux and Tuscan treasures, as well as almost never seen domestic and international spirits. DRC, Cheval Blanc, Pappy and other gems are consistent consumer requests now which the company seeks out and acquires on behalf of its clients.

What is Provenance? When dealing with expensive and rare wines, collectors want to know the wine is impeccably sourced and that its life in bottle was one of proper care and storage. All Bounty Hunter offerings, including these ultra-rare DRC packs have the highest level of provenance and are offered in banded OWC. In terms of investment value, this combination provides the best assurance that the wines have not been tampered with or manipulated. ”Banded, OWC, especially for DRC is a big deal” says Senior Wine Buyer, Rob Ord. “The combination definitely speaks to clear provenance, it’s about as good as it’s going to get in terms of investment valuation. We work with a few trusted suppliers and are adamant about following up on their sourcing and storage. There is no point investing in a Ferrari that has the engine of a Ford Festiva”.

Bounty Hunter doesn’t just deal in rare wines either. The Director of Spirits, Micah Rochelle, says “we regularly work to find the rarest of the rare, including older bottles from a bygone era, Pappy and rare Macallan; it never sticks around long, but we have found a steady supply of some of the world’s finest and rarest bottles.”

Finding wines and spirits that others can’t is in Bounty Hunter’s DNA, it’s what they do. Can’t find it online? Call or email them at 800-943-9463.

About Domaine de la Romanee-Conti
Considered by most to be the greatest red wine Domaine in Burgundy, DRC is the most sought-after Pinot Noir in the world. Its history starts in 1760 when the famous La Romanée vineyard was purchased by Louis-François de Bourbon, the Prince of Conti. The prince was so enamored by the wine from this vineyard that not only did he add his name to the vineyard, branding it La Romanée-Conti, but he refused to share even one bottle of this delicious nectar with his friends.

Since 1942 two families have co-owned DRC, de Villaine and Roch, with Aubert de Villaine and Henri-Frédéric Roch being the printed signatures appearing on every bottle today. The Estate has moved with the times and has been farming organically since 1986, switching to full biodynamic farming in 2007. The wines are long lived and, when at their best, there is no wine more sublime than DRC. This high level of quality is attained by following a meticulous regime: 90 pickers hand-harvest and sort the grapes before delivery to the winery where they are sorted once again before vinification. The Pinot Noir is fermented in traditional open-top wood vats and the skins are pressed down (pigeage) twice daily by hand. The wines are generally aged for over 18 months in tight-grained new French oak barrels adding even more complexity and texture.

Overall DRC produces less than 8,000 total cases per year, with production of the monopole Grand Cru La Romanee Conti at less than 450 cases each year. This scarcity, combined with longevity and outstanding quality, catapult this wine into the upper echelons of the wine market for both investment and drinking. This track record is not just for the older vintages found in hallowed collections, but also for recent vintages. In 2017 the wines of DRC collectively increased in value by 30%, a great return that is difficult to match even by successful hedge fund managers and financial advisors.

As with many top collector wines fraud has always been an issue, recently highlighted by the case of Rudi Kurniawan. Tracking provenance to avoid counterfeits is difficult, however banded cases coming directly from the Domaine (or its sole importer Wilson Daniels) ensure absolute authenticity.

These wines beg to be drunk, but careful aging will only increase their value and complexity making them even more desirable. What a dilemma to have!
