Joint-manager of the Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, Aubert de Villaine applies the same vineyard work ethics to the Bouzeron terroir as he does to Vosne Romanée. No one knows his secret but the magic works every year. He gives his "hush-hush" appellations the profiles of "grands vins" and a force of expression unlike any of their peers.
