(03-2010) Tasted at Hix restaurant, a bottle shared between two so that I was able to witness how this wine blossoms and boy, does it blossom. The nose is just pure Pinot in excelsis, touches of wild strawberry, redcurrant, a tangible mineralite…but it is the delineation and the clarity that is so ethereal. The palate is beautifully balanced, perfect acidity, swelling with intensity (not power) over the course of two hours, brilliant precision with touches of raspberry and wild strawberry and just exuberant, “Pinote”. It just glides across the palate and lingers on the finish so that you cannot forget it in a hurry. Sublime. Drink now-2030+

(09-1999) A sensational La Tâche that's as good as I remember upon release. Shows a suppleness in the tannins without compromising the compact mineral, wet earth and ironlike flavors that express this grand cru's terroir. Balanced, with lots of beautiful fruit, but above all it has pleasure and harmony etched all over it.

Romanée Conti (Domaine)

Acquired by the Prince de Conti in 1760, the 1.85 ha vineyard produces little more than 6,000 bottles of mythical and exceptional wine per yearl. After the French Revolution, the area was declared a national asset, Romanée Conti counted many owners, including family-Duvault Blochet, who acquired several other parcels, including La Tâche, Richebourg and Echézeaux. Today, every bottle of Romanée Conti is signed by both Aubert de Villaine and Henry-Frederic Roch. Romanee Conti was the last vineyard in Burgundy to resist phylloxera, but during the second world war, the lack of carbon disulphide led to its destruction in 1945. For five years, from 1946 to 1951, no vintage was produced. The conditions of vinification and aging (maximum maturity of the fruit, very high selectivity, maximum precautions at every stage, breeding new wood) can produce an exceptional wine. Thus, magnificent complex aromas evoking rose, violet, spices, truffles and leather are in this sumptuous wine. All Domain Romanee Conti is implemented to produce only wines to keep. Biodynamics has taken over the last ten years a different share under the new leadership of Henry Frédéric-Roch, one of two co-managers of Domaine Romanee Conti with Aubert de Villaine. The owner of Domaine de la Romanee-Conti, one of the most famous vineyards in the world, has been elected Decanter Man of The Year 2010 by the eponymous magazine. Aubert de Villaine is the largest producer of wines from Burgundy to receive this award since its inception. Modest, it seems that he also refused at first to be rewarded, before changing his mind to finally accept. Co-owner of the domain family of Romanée-Conti with the Leroy family, Aubert de Villaine long hesitated before walking in the footsteps of his father. After studying law and literature, he flew to New York and began his career as an importerof wines from Burgundy. Fascinated by wine, he also devoted himself to journalism and has interviewed, among others, Robert Mondavi 1966. During this period his father called him  to his side. He started as an apprentice to the field. Since then, he has consistently put his dedication, passion and service requirement of Romanée-Conti, which continues to produce the greatest red wines in the world. .
