    La Tache 1953
    Domaine de la Romanee Conti
    8cm, lbsl, outstanding color, #3197
    Bottle (1)


    "Bricked through. A fascinating and ever changing caramel, sous bois, brown sugar, spice and tea leaf infused nose of truly marvelous depth and breadth complements the floral, sweet, pure and refined flavors that reflect the softness of the '53 vintage, all wrapped in a velvety and utterly seductive finish. This is a study in grace and purity of expression and unlike many '53s, this retains just enough firmness that the finish remains detailed and defined. A great effort that continues to drink well." (95 pts Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, May 2005)
