Darker with intense blue fruit gorgeous and concentrated but with lifted plummy fruit and star anise. A saline quality and real depth. Young and amazing.

Good dark red; not crystal-clear. Very ripe, musky, multidimensional nose combines blackberry, raspberry, violet, earth, game, black pepper and herbs, plus a positive vegetal nuance. Plush, silky and very ripe but not particularly sweet, with concentrated dark fruit, spice and pepper flavors complicated by a hint of prune. ("More fruit ripeness than the '15," noted Aubert de Villaine just moments after we had tasted the '15 La Tâche) Finishes with substantial dusty tannins and a note of licorice. Not particularly high in acidity but this extremely complex wine is still just short of its peak drinking window. (Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, March 2018)

The 1999 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti La Tâche is a transcendent bottle, wherein no one element dominates, it's in absolute harmony, not unlike a great piece of music or art. It has pronounced power, and is at the same time weightless and ethereal. Layers of crushed raspberries, currants, blackberries and plum give substance to more fleeting layers of exotic spice, minerals, rose petals, black tea, and fresh alfalfa hay, all of which crescendos in a seemingly endless finish. A profound wine.

Just amazing on the nose, pushing the variation new levels of excitement. Silky sweet on the almost full bodied palate, combining power and elegance, offering a plethora of fruit, spice yet remains sleek on the finish. Like a controlled Casbah market.

1999 DRC La Tache. Date night at Margot. Decanted and served, which was the right play. Lots of dark fruit, meat, and savory notes. “In the jowls” - great mouthfeel.
