Domaine de la Romanee-Conti La Tache 2009-Cote de Nuits, France


Domaine de la Romanee-Conti, La Tache 2009

The DRC la Tache 2009 is a quite monumental wine. In the bouquet layers of red and dark fruit – forrest berries, black cherries – perfumed with allspice, violets, peony rose and cinnamon. On the palete a gear up from the concentration in Richebourg and Romanee St. Vivant. Mulitible layers of lush ripe pinot fruit, firmly structured by a intense mineralic expression of the terroir. Style wise it resembles the Richebourg, just more rich and dense, and much more focused. In addition the La Tache 09 has a zen like harmony and balance – very impressive at this very young stage. It’s perheps not able to rival the great 1990, but is definately a great bottle of La Tache.

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
  The 2009 La Tache is a very subtle wine. It boasts incredible richness and depth, yet remains elusive. Silky, impossibly refined tannins frame the seamless, resonant finish. Nothing in particular stands out. Everything is simply in the right place. Anticipated maturity: 2024-2059. (AG)    (4/2012)

97 points Wine Spectator
  Noticeably oaky and darker than its siblings, evoking black cherry, licorice and spice. On the palate, there's depth and concentration, with a menthol note that persists through the long finish. The mouthcoating tannins will require some time to integrate.—Non-blind 2009 DRC tasting (February 2012). Best from 2016 through 2042. (Web-2012)   

96 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
  Bright red-ruby. Subtle, sweet perfume of black raspberry, spices and truffle. Compellingly sweet, sexy wine with terrific vinosity to frame its ripe berry, floral and underbrush flavors. The wine's inner-mouth aromatic character owes more to spices and earth than to high-pitched fruits and flowers, but this is like bottled pheromones. Finishes with powerful mouthdusting tannins and superb lift and length.    (3/2012)
