La Tache 1983

La Tache - Domaine de la Romanee Conti

34 years

PRODUCTION: 1,097 cases. The most controversial vintage over the last several decades, the 1983 reveals a dark ruby/garnet color with noticeable lightening at the edge. The intoxicatingly perfumed bouquet offers up intense aromas of earth, mushrooms, sweet, overripe black-raspberry fruit, prunes, smoke, and Asian spices. The complex aromatics are followed by a powerful, tannic, highly concentrated wine with immense body, some astringency, and a huge, alcoholic, rich, glycerin-dominated finish. While it is not the purest example of La Tache, it is one of the few great expressions of this vintage. It should drink well for another 10-15+ years, although the color will continue to become more degraded with aging. *** Last Tasted 01/92; This is a brilliant 1983 that should continue to evolve magnificently over the next two decades. Dark ruby, with a huge nose of smoky, exotic, ripe Pinot fruit, leather, and minerals. In the mouth, this is the most powerful La Tache of the last decade, with whoppingly high alcohol, hard tannins, and superb concentration and length. It should be at its apogee between 1996-2010.
