Lot #118. Domaine de la Romanée-Conti La Tâche 1971

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 100 JCL.
"An ethereal wine filled with sweet, dried rose and jasmine petals that seem delicate at first but is quite the opposite on the palate. The wine opens up like a rose in full bloom with flavors of spice box, dried currant, and mixed herbs. There is an underlying sweetness of fruit combined with a firm backbone of acidity. The texture is silky soft, like chiffon, but the persistence and finish reveal its power. This is an incredible wine, an amazing bottle, with a long, lingering finish." Jeannie Cho Lee MW, JeannieChoLee.com, Nov 2015
