Echezeaux Grand Cru
From the commune of Vosne Romanee - This is the top of the Côte de Nuits. Home to the famous Grand Crus of Romanée, Romanée-Conti, Romanée St. Vivant, Richebourg, La Tâche, Echézeaux, Grands Echézeaux, and La Grand Rue, this village really makes you realize how much extraordinary wine can come from a tiny place. This is the home of quintessential Burgundy-deep, rich, refined and powerful.
Domaine de la Romanee Conti La TacheDomaine de la Romanee Conti La Tache 1991
"PRODUCTION: 1,428 cases. The 1991 La Tache is a compelling wine. It possesses a deep color, as well as a tell-tale, decadent bouquet of smoked meats, jammy black fruits, and Asian spices. Expansive, full-bodied, and oozing with rich, sweet fruit, this example of La Tache, despite its flamboyance, is structured, tannic, and in need of at least 3-4 more years of cellaring. It should last for 20 years. Drink: 1998-2015."
93 points, Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
Romanée-Conti Grand Cru - Domaine de la Romanée-Conti The greatest red wine on earth? Only a privileged few will ever get to find out, as so little is produced.
"Immense refinement and breed on the nose, with a sweet, ripe violetty bouquet. Wild strawberries on the palate. This is pure harmony."
