Domaine de la Romanée-Conti (DRC) La Tâche Pinot Noir 2002

$6995

This is still rather reserved though determined swirling reveals a nose that is exceptionally fine and pure with fantastic aromatic detail and an almost diaphanous transparency of expression that reveals all of the kaleidoscopic La Tache spice box nose, including anise, clove, plums, high-toned black cherry, crushed red raspberry and more. The broad, expansive and powerful flavors are still on the strict side with a mid-palate of massive depth yet the finish is round, generous, sappy and superbly complex culminating in a finish that lasts for minutes. Despite the aromatic fireworks and opulent character, there is an underlying tenderness here that suggests that this will be approachable relatively early but the balance is so fine that this should easily age for 30 years, perhaps longer...

Y’all need to visit my friend Jojo in Lyon. We spent hours with him and he made the whole trip. He said to tell everyone, “depending on just how cool you are. He might open some cool Shit”

Opulent, fleshy. A hint of orange peel. Lovely middle, good tension and great length.

Such a youngster. Spicy and green on the nose. Barely softened with an hour decant. Palate was almost viscous. Crazy level of extraction and depth. Just needs time. A lot of time

Im arguing with myself as to whether this is my top red wine. It's seamless! Yes it's still young, the oak still shows a subtle sense of wood, the fruit precise elegant and perfumed. Acid and tannin fine, poised.

While having the Asian spices, Hoisin, soy also a bit sweet after 3 plus hours of Audoze style airing. Bramble red fruits are prominent with nice complexity

IMHO, this sets the bar for Burgundy. Wow, great balance, so well integrated, incredible structure. Dark fruits, a hint of spices and mushrooms. So many layers...
