Vosne-Romanée

Domaine de la Romanée- Conti, La Tâche Grand Cru
Layered palate of savoury herbs and game along with dark berry fruits. Subtle yet persistent with an incredibly long finish. Fine acidity runs through, lifting flavours and ending with a firm finish. Classic, surprisingly open La Tâche with silky tannins and seductive aromatics. 18.5pts/20 (95/100pts)
