La Tâche 2001
Domaine de la Romanée-Conti

(lightly bin-soiled, scuffed and stained label)
1 bottle

"While it's hard to believe, the nose has become even more elegant with age and has retained its strikingly extravagant panoply of rose petals, oriental spices, pungent tea and leather notes plus ultra refined pinot fruit. The powerful, chiseled, pure flavors are remarkably detailed, precise and fine with mind bending complexity yet for all the emotional drama of this wine, it remains understated and almost aloof at the moment. The finish is dense, structured and still firm though there is nary a hard edge to be found and while this too cannot rival the other worldly 1999 (see herein), 2001 will one day be thought of as a genuinely excellent vintage for La Tâche. In short, aristocratic in every sense. Note that while this is certainly not yet quite ready for prime time, it is approaching the point where it could be opened with pleasure." (96pts Allen Meadows, Burghound, April 2017)
