La Tache 1990

La Tache - Domaine de la Romanee Conti

27 years

I cannot think of a more profound, young red Burgundy tasted than DRC's 1990 La Tache. Although it still requires another 3-4 years of cellaring, it is incredibly endowed, with an extraordinary perfume of Asian spices as well as jammy black raspberries, cherries, and blackberries infused with smoke, toast, and dried herbs. Full-bodied, but ethereal, with layers of flavor, as well as mind-boggling delicacy and complexity, this youthful La Tache will be at its finest between 2004-2015. *** PRODUCTION: 2,006 cases. This gets my vote as the greatest La Tache after the 1978, and, hopefully, an even longer-lived and more complete wine. It is a candidate for the "wine of the vintage" in this highly esteemed Burgundy vintage. The saturated dark ruby/purple color is followed by a developing bouquet that only hints at what will eventually emerge. There is an extraordinary amount of black fruits in the nose, as well as a floral component, and that exotic, Asian spice/smoky scent that the DRC routinely obtains. The new oak takes a back seat to the exceptional quantity of fruit. Full-bodied, with noticeable ripe, sweet tannin, this expansive wine represents an extraordinary expression of Pinot Noir. In spite of the wine's structure, it is hard to resist drinking. The high extraction of flavor and structure suggest this wine will hit its apogee in 2-5 years and last for 15-20 years.
