Lot #122. Domaine de la Romanée-Conti La Tâche 2002

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 98+ NM.
"Medium-deep color. Seductive nose is filled with spice and herbs to support rich, ripe black cherry and raspberry fruit. In the mouth, this youthful wine shows remarkable complexity, offering a cornucopia of flavors including cinnamon, nutmeg, mulled cider, and spicy baked apple. Equally impressive is the dancing vitality of La Tache, a three-ring circus in your mouth. Powerful, dense, and concentrated, it’s a bit tight and the best years are still ahead. Very long, penetrating, dramatic finish. 'Like falling in love.' Simply impossible to resist, a great, great wine." Neal Martin, Wine Journal, May 2012
Provenance: The Nantais Cellar
Notes: Very lightly scuffed capsule, lightly scuffed label. Bottle No. 01587
