DRC bottles

Together with Aubert de Villaine, Perrine Fenal is named the new co-director of mythic Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, succeeding her cousin, Henry-Frédéric Roch, who passed away last November.

Domaine de la Romanée-Conti has been managed by a partnership of two people for some years now: Aubert de Villaine and “Lalou” Bize-Leroy from 1974 to 1991, then in 1992, Charles Roch took his aunt’s place, then after his accidental death, his brother Henry-Frédéric Roch took over the running of the domain.

DRC’s website reads: “Perrine has always felt deeply attached to the domain, both professionally and personally. As a child, she would often accompany her grand-father M. Henri Leroy, then her mother Lalou Bize-Leroy. From 1992 to 2004, the company Perrine Fenal S.A. was an importer and distributor of the domain’s wines in western Switzerland.”

She was chosen by her family and named by the domain’s general assembly on 23rd January 2019. In 2004, she had already been appointed a member of the supervisory board, following in the footsteps of her aunt Pauline Roch. Today, Pauline’s daughter, sister of Henry-Frédéric Roch, Isabelle Roch has taken over the role.
