*****Michael Broadbent

...still with good colour; gloriously fragrant, sustained Pinot bouquet, sweet, superb balance.

(from methuselah)... ... perfectly ready to drink, it offers a touch more of everything and should hold for several more decades. Tasted twice in this format with consistent notes.

90Robert M. Parker Jr. outstanding wine because of its voluptuous texture, and thick, juicy, succulent flavors.


France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits, Vosne-Romanee, La Tache

La Tache is a 14.4-acre Grand Cru monopole in the Cote de Nuits owned exclusively by Domaine de la Romanee-Conti. Until 1932 La Tache was a much smaller vineyard, but in that year the government allowed Domaine de la Romanee-Conti to buy the adjacent 11-acre Les Gaudichots vineyard. La Tache’s elevation is 255 to 300 meters and it has several kinds of soil including large amounts of limestone and clay.


Red Wine, Pinot Noir, Grand Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
