Burgundy-Report

    (Romanée-Conti La Tâche) Already lost much of its youthful colour, just a trace of cherry still at the rim compliments a core of medium-plus ruby. Starts with a blast of fruit, becomes mute for a while, then starts to show its wares, complex fruit laced with spice notes that you really only get with La Tâche - almost ginger cake - just a trace of oak toast and smoky stems in the mix too. There's an understated entry into this wine before a fabulous burst of fruit rushes you from the mid-palate into the finish. The soft tannins are buried and the acidity is just right. It needs an hour from opening to blossom, but this was a stellar performance for such a baby.

    (Romanée-Conti La Tâche) The nose is wider and almost as deep as the Richebourg, swirling initially, and surprisingly tightens things up – still it’s a deep, dark, well of fruit. I seem to be running out of superlatives… In every dimension this wine at least matches the Richebourg and in overall concentration seems its better. This is quite stunning (an over-used word but accurately used in this context), there’s a perceptible extra width. It’s not a fabulously spicy La Tâche but comes across as a complete wine – is it really possible to improve on this?

    (DRC La Tache) The exotic spice came out after some coaxing and there were some very interesting aromas that started to develop after my glass became empty. But emptying that glass was incredible. This wine was out of this frigging world on the palate. This was the most velvety wine I have ever put in my mouth and had such lavish, pure extravagant fruit that I could not believe it. This wine was like a dream in the mouth. It is one of the few wines I have put in my mouth and was just like . . . . .ahhh . . . this is perfect. It had a creaminess that was just so compelling. It was incredibly concentrated, yet light as a feather and perfectly judged sweetness of fruit and a texture I would make a suit out of. Long finish with perfect dissolve and dissipation of flavors. An amazing poetic wine. I hope I taste this again one day as this was some reference point shit for me.
