Domaine de la Romanee Conti La Tache 2001
Intense ripe fruits on the nose, and smooth, rich red berries dominate, with hints of tar and spic. Very elegant. The palate is quite backward with lots of spicy structure ad smooth but firm tannins. Real depth to the fruit with a good balance between all the components. Minerally finish. Currently very firm but with lots of potential for the future.
Our last Burgundy of the night was served blind. It was an explosive, ripe wine packed with an impressively dense core of fruit framed by new oak. It turned out to be the 2001 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti La Tâche, a wine that is perhaps 15 years away from being ready to drink. Needless to say, it was an incredible privilege to catch this wine at this relatively early stage.

A touch of brick on the rim. The nose is quite subdued for La Tache, a hint of melted tar on a hot summer’s day, wild hedgerow, almost Musigny-like in persona. The palate is similarly very closed, perhaps in an adolescent stage similar to the La Tache 1996 taste. But its velvety tannins are discernable, the finely poised balance and vibrant acidity. Hints of black plum and dried herbs towards the finish that has a touch of stalkiness that for me just adds complexity.
