Lot #210. Domaine de la Romanée-Conti La Tâche 2017

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 97 NM.
"The 2017 La Tâche was picked on September 6 and 7 at 34hl/ha and bottled between March 25 and April 24. As Aubert de Villaine had noted earlier, this is a more introverted La Tâche that bided its time in the glass. The fruit is slightly darker than the Romanée-Saint-Vivant, with the addition of a little blueberry and violet and background scents of moorland, though they needed 10–15 minutes in the glass before they revealed themselves. The medium-bodied palate delivers lithe tannins matched with a very fine line of acidity. This displays more body and grip than the Richebourg or Romanée-Saint-Vivant, and wondrous piquancy on the loamy finish . . . . 2,082 cases produced. Tasted at Corney & Barrow’s annual in-bottle tasting in London." Vinous, Feb 2020
Provenance: The Brochet Cellar
Notes: Nicked label. #02612.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $3,750
