1999 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti la Tâche
|Vineyard:||Domaine de la Romanee Conti|
Wine.comFull ruby-red. Even riper aromas of crystallized raspberry, cassis and licorice. Then quite clenched, even a bit brutal, and dominated by its firm structure; very dense but unusually unfortcoming for La Tache at this stage of it's development. Theis was the last '98 to finish its malolactic fermentation, de Villaine noted. Best today on the very long finish; the firm tannins coat the entire palate.
