- As run by the august Madame Lalou Bize-Leroy, her eponymous domaine is the most celebrated biodynamic estate in Burgundy, if not the world. In part responsible (as co-manager) for Romanée-Conti's rise to iconic status, Bize-Leroy was famously ousted from there in 1992 and with acquired acreage, shrewdly built today's 23 hectare, 26 appellation, 9 Grand Cru estate.
