1999 Domaine Romanee-Conti Le Tache

11-14% alc., $450. Le Tache is a legendary wine of such great acclaim that it is hard to do it justice by any descriptive measure (it is said that you discuss a good Bordeaux, but you simply enjoy a good Burgundy). It is also hard to see beyond the label. La Tache is, of course, a monopole, like Romanee-Conti. · There is bottomless cassis, wild strawberries and Oriental spice on the nose with dark cherries flashing through the flavors. Rich in the nose and the taste (“stacked and packed”), yet elegant and refined, it seems perfect in every way. Although a treat to drink now, it is still a youngster and withholding some hidden charms. Truly, a festive occasion. Reviewed August 24, 2007 WINERY » ARTICLE »
