Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, La Tâche Grand Cru 1995
Bottle Size: 75cl
Region: France: Burgundy Red
Grape Variety: Pinot Noir
This wine is mind-boggling and has gathered even more body, power, and density than it displayed from barrel. It is intensely profound, and super-ripe yet harmonious. Its extraordinarily long finish (it tails off with a sweet kirsch kiss) flabbergasted me. I could not help but think of the finishes of two wines I love - Chateau Rayas and Chateau Lafleur. It appears to be holding an enormous amount in reserve, and may ultimately merit higher ratings. It should be held at least ten years, and will easily last through 2020 given proper cellar conditions. Bravo! Tasted August 1988 95 Points, Pierre Rovani, The Wine Advocate.
