For those who don’t know him, Aubert de Villaine is the world’s greatest Pinot Noir maker. After all, he’s the long-standing director and winemaker of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, the world’s most prized Pinot Noir estate. With the wines of Domaine A. & P. de Villaine, his own personal wines, Aubert is offering up a little taste of his profound magic. I’ll let Robert Parker explain:

“While Aubert de Villaine is synonymous with Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, there is no question that at least one ventricle of his heart is devoted to his personal estate in Bouzeron that he bought with his wife Pamela in the 1970s.

“I think it is partly responsible for Aubert remaining such a down-to-earth personality, when others might have succumbed to self-aggrandizement occupying such a position. As you might expect, these are well-crafted wines that are often understated, nuanced, and utterly beguiling.”

The world’s greatest Pinot Noir maker. Offering you wines he made from his own personal vineyard. For free. Why wouldn’t you experience this opportunity? We’ll see you here.
