LA TACHE 1978 DOMAINE DE LA ROMANEE-CONTI
La Tâche 1978 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti
Côte de Nuits, Grand Cru
u. 1x4cm, heavily scuffed, stained labels and vintage neck labels, 1 cut capsule reveals fully branded cork

At 32 years old, this has the most incredible gamey, scented bouquet of huge, heathery purity. All pervasive, enveloping all who were tasting. On the palate, an almost honied, cherryish, damp earth taste, with immense persistence and length - it lingered for minutes. Alarmingly beautiful in that unique DRC way. There were notes of charcoal and bright, red fruit but, in the end, it was just La Tâche at its most seductive and alluring. Serena Sutcliffe, MW WA 95
