Winemaker Notes

On the nose, slightly animal, vegetal notes, hints of wild game from the forest. In the mouth: density, concentration and length. Exotic spices. An impression of "chiseled precision." Great cellaring potential.

RP 97
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
From barrel, the 2008 La Tache displays intensely ripe, berry-tart concentration of cassis, red currant, and blackberry, wreathed in musky floral perfume, and backed not only by marrowy meat stock richness, but by a deep, oceanic melange of alkaline, saline, mineral and animal elements that brought to mind Romanee St.-Vivant. Seamlessly sweet, subtly silken, and vibrantly bright, this finishes explosively, with tactile impingement of black pepper and brown spices adding to its brashly fresh fruit and mineral intensity. There is a striking transparency on display here, in the sense that floral, spicy, maritime, and stony elements seem to shimmer through the fruit. When I remark on this aspect, de Villaine points out that "the selection in the vineyard and press house was intense and impeccable" which, he suggests, also goes a long way toward accounting for the wine's degree of tannic refinement. Needless to say, I am sure this wine’s active life span will be measured in decades, not years.
96-97 points.
BH 97
Burghound.com
A highly expressive and kaleidoscopic nose also offers up a dazzling breadth of aromas with more rose petal and violet notes combining with those of kirsch, herb and humus, all of which are reflected by the ripe, pure and extremely fresh silkily-textured big-bodied flavors that possess firm tannins that are completely enrobed by the impressive amount of extract that also coats the mouth on the hugely long finish. The '08 La Tâche is not an especially powerful wine by its standards and it's more like a gymnast with its sleek muscularity and perfect balance. Terrific.
94-97 points.

Domaine de la Romanee-Conti Domaine de la Romanee-Conti Vineyards Winery Image

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 Tache - 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.
