La Tache 1986

La Tache - Domaine de la Romanee Conti

31 years

PRODUCTION: 1,694 cases. This is another fully mature La Tache that requires drinking over the next 4-5 years. The medium garnet color exhibits some lightening at the edge. The wine reveals an attractive, herbal, earthy, berry fruit-scented nose. Slightly tannic, but soft and diffuse, this wine is likely to dry out by the end of the century. *** La Tache, made from 35-year-old vines, is a brooding infant. Splendidly perfumed (a trait shared by all their 1986 wines), it showed great depth and richness but plenty of mouthsearing tannins that suggest it needs until 1995-1996. It is quite a big, bold, dramatic red burgundy (as all this domaine's wines tend to be), but it would be a shame to drink it before 1995. This is among the few superstars of this vintage, but the 1986 is not for drinking soon-patience is most definitely required.
