Winemaker's Notes:

Dark red color. The nose is dense, but discreet. Black fruits. It is unctuous, ample, rich and opulent in the mouth. The balance between complexity and lightness gives birth to a very classic La Tache: noble, concentrated, lanky, muscled and powerful, but lean and still reserved.
My Notes:

About Domaine de la Romanee Conti:

Considered the pinnacle of Burgundy, Domaine de la Romanee-Conti produces some of the world’s most revered wines from its tiny vineyards in Vosne-Romanee. Two of the Domaine's seven Grand Cru vineyards - La Romanée-Conti and La Tâche - are monopoles (appellations entirely owned by the Domaine) and unarguably the greatest vineyards in Burgundy. Richebourg, Romanee-St.-Vivant, Grands-Echezeaux, Echezeaux, and Montrachet (in Chassagne) are also Grand Cru vineyards, yielding sublime wines that are among the most highly-sought, seductive and rarest in the world.
