2020 Domaine de la Romanee-Conti 'La Tache' Grand Cru Monopole

(Net Item - no discounts apply)

Nothing evokes La Tâche so much as the wonderful portrait of Richelieu by Philippe de Champaigne, which expresses the Cardinal’s fiery and angular authority, a nervous hand posed on the hilt of his sword, while the sword itself is drowned in a luxurious cascade of ermine and velvet. La Tâche is elegance and rigor. Beneath the frequent firmness of its tannins, passion is aflame, restrained by an implacable, courtly elegance

Wine Advocate

The 2020 La Tâche incarnates everything wonderful about this vintage – it is ripe, exuberant, and approachable, yet packed with potential and the substance for long aging. The wine continues to impress with the similar exotic red fruit and floral notes that it showed out of barrel, and it is already giving great pleasure. Still, there is great concentration and length to this wine; it may, like the 2009 vintage, be ready to drink early and never shut down. Picking began on 30 August and finished on 2 – 3 September after a short break for rain. 14,844 bottles were produced."
