RATINGS

19.5Jancis Robinson

Candied violets dancing along the top. Lovely sweet palate entry and real life and lift. Dry but not drying finish and such confident structure. Lissom. Very firm finish and wonderfully sappy appetising undertow. Not heavy at all.

96+ Stephen Tanzer

Subdued but very pure and nuanced aromas of tangy red fruits, flowers, Oriental spices, licorice and crushed stone, plus an exhilarating hint of peach. Wonderfully suave on entry, then rich, ripe, dry and sharply delineated...

96Burghound.com

...spicy essence of red berry fruit aromas to emerge...where there is a slight hint of herbal tea present. There is a similar reserve to the distinctly focused and linear flavors that enjoy a seemingly unlimited reserve of dry extract.

95The Wine Advocate

...wonderful bouquet that is quintessential La Tache: very complete and harmonious, beautifully delineated, succinct at first then with aeration, blossoming with brambly red berries, apple blossom, minerals and a touch of sous-bois.

95Vinous / IWC

Sweet floral and savory notes meld into expressive red fruit in a wine that impresses for its lifted, weightless personality and total class. Crushed flowers, anise and sweet red berries wrap around the resonant, super-polished finish.

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.
