Lot #36. Domaine de la Romanée-Conti La Tâche 2016

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 98 AM.
"Yields of 31 hl/ha. As is often the case, the highly perfumed nose is the most floral-inflected of the range with its equally cool and restrained array of violet and rose petal scents that combine with an extraordinary group of spice elements on the essence of red currant aromas. The mouthfeel of the imposingly-scaled and powerful flavors is again robust yet refined with just as much minerality as the Richebourg adding even more lift to the almost painfully intense and extravagantly long finish that also just goes and goes. There is a hint of backend warmth but it's not enough to materially detract from the overall sense of harmony though I underscore that the '16 LT is one very firm effort that will require decades to fully shed its tannic shell. With that said, this is genuinely brilliant." Burghound.com, Jan 10, 2019
