RATINGS

96The Wine Advocate

The palate is medium-bodied with great structure and fine grip. This is a slightly more masculine La Tâche and replicating its performance in barrel, the fruit spectrum shimmies from red to black...

96+ Stephen Tanzer

...surprisingly silky on entry, then sweet but very restrained, even a bit ungiving, in the middle palate, with pungent red berry & mineral flavors conveying an impression of electric energy. This wine builds slowly and inexorably with air

96Burghound.com

Fireworks in a glass would be the operative description of the super-fresh nose...imposingly powerful and tautly muscular flavors possess outstanding mid-palate density while simultaneously offering excellent delineation...

19Jancis Robinson

...the acidity spills around the edges and lifts it to terrific intensity on the palate. Firm, chalky texture but still fluid. Long and so refined that the power is disguised.

REGION

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.

TYPE

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.
