Winemaker's Notes

Full ruby-red. Even riper aromas of crystallized raspberry, cassis and licorice. Then quite clenched, even a bit brutal, and dominated by its firm structure; very dense but unusually unfortcoming for La Tache at this stage of it's development. Theis was the last '98 to finish its malolactic fermentation, de Villaine noted. Best today on the very long finish; the firm tannins coat the entire palate.

Learn 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.
