Lot #379. Domaine de la Romanée-Conti La Tâche 1998

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 95 AM.
"This remains relatively primary though there are subtle secondary hints creeping in to add nuance to the stunning nose of ripe red and black fruits, oriental spices, tea and leather notes. There is superb intensity to the dense, serious and strikingly complex flavors that are underpinned by ripe tannins and huge length on the balanced, mouth coating and dazzling finish. The personality here is edgy, cool, confident and pure with the ripe acidity framing the flavors and the finish here is wonderfully focused. It's worth pointing out that while this is still on the way up, I was pleasantly surprised at how approachable the '98 LT was even though there is more development potential to realize. Multiple and consistent notes." Burghound.com, Jan 2012
Provenance: The Calamansi Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $4,250
