Domaine de la Romanée-Conti la Tâche 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2003 La Tache reveals aromas of milk chocolate, violets, roses, anddark cherries. Suave, displaying massive amplitude and a full-bodied,velvety-textured character, this behemoth's flavor profile brings to mindchocolate-covered black cherries. Immensely powerful and noble, it offers aninterminable finish that is packed with flawlessly ripe, sweet tannin.Projected maturity: 2013-2030." 99/100 pts (Pierre Rovani - WineAdvocate - Aug 2005)

Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, located in Vosne-Romanée, is one of the most prestigious vineyard sites in Burgundy, France. The domaine boasts seven Grand Cru properties, and the two monopolies (meaning they are owned and operated by the domaine itself) La Romanée-Conti and La Tâche are considered the finest vineyards in all of Burgundy. The other five - Richebourg, Romanée-St-Vivant, Grands Ėchezaux, Ėchezaux and Montrachet  (which overlaps with Chassagne) - are also among the upper echelon. With the exception of the Chardonny-only Montrachet, Domaine de La Romanée-Conti is known for producing exceptional, rare reds from Pinot Noir, prized for their structured fruit, perfume and longevity.  The vineyard had already been named Romanée since the 13th century when it was first acquired by the de Croonembourg family. The hyphenation is derived from a 1760 bidding war between Madame de Pompadour, Louis XV and Louis François ler de Bourbon, Prince de Conti. You can guess who won.  These vineyard are on slopes facing east and south-east for optimal grape-ripening exposure, with iron-rich limestone and marl soils. Some of the vines are quite old by Burgundy standards, up to 50 years, which adds to the power of the wines. The small production wines are from vineyards that are organically cultivated, with yields kept low.  Read less
