Estate Notes

Romanée-Conti's La Tache vineyards sweep from the top to the bottom of the mid slope, which contains the appellation's grand crus and covers a diverse array of terroir. This, in part, contributes to a more extravagant wine than Romanée-Conti itself.

Romanée Conti is Burgundy’s greatest producer, and its exceptionally rare wines are amongst the most sought-after and expensive in the world. Such is its fame, that Burgundians often refer to it simply as the ‘the Domaine’, and it owns incredibly valuable vineyards in each of Burgundy’s red wine Grand Crus.

Reviews

"Ineffable liqueur-like perfume combines blackberry, black raspberry, cassis, truffle and tar. Fat, sweet and dense but quite closed in the mouth; not yet showing La Tache's typical licorice component. But a complete wine with superb structure and a very, very long and subtle aftertaste that builds slowly and saturates the olfactories." Stephen Tanzer

"This blockbuster wine possesses a profound nose. It exhibits awesomely ripe red and black fruits, raw meat, and Asian spices, all of which are encased in sweet toasty oak. This full-bodied, wide, thick, focused, harmonious, and intense wine releases amazingly powerful layers of candied black cherries and blackberries. It is structured, totally precise, pure, and possesses an exceptionally long finish loaded with abundant sweet tannins." eRobertParker.com
