2020, La Tâche Grand Cru, Domaine de la Romanée-Conti 98
La Tâche is no denser in colour. The bouquet introduces nobility but as always in a slightly sterner register No easy access here. The stems are apparent on the palate, bringing crushed dark strawberries and white pepper, ahead of the roses. A fleeting thought of tar and roses but not the same acidity of course as Barolo, though there is a good thread nonetheless. There is much more red fruit here and perhaps some iron oxide, and indeed La Tâche does indeed display a redder soil. Drink from 2040-2060. Tasted: October 2022.

This wine was not at all easy to get to grips with, as this note will show, so I have permitted myself to retain a spread of scores. The colour is a little more evolved than I expected and the nose as well, yet the real wine is very much more backward. There is a huge density of mulberry and damson, richly ripe yet still amazingly exciting fruit. The wine begins to find its place on the palate, freshening up to overcome something a little bit vegetal. My impression is that this bottle is a bit sulky, rather than the wine itself. A repour has much better freshness and all the expected intensity. Some roses start to come out. This is really building and is now becoming something phenomenal - saved! However, I have to take into account the difficult start. Drink from 2040-2070. Tasted: October 2022.
