    La Tache 1989
    Domaine de la Romanee Conti
    1lbsl, 6lscl, 6sdc, #04462-73, owc
    Bottle (12)
    "The '89 really has not perceptibly budged in the last 5 years as it remains completely primary and while all of the classic La Tâche spice aromas are there, the complexity and depth that most vintages display by age 13 are not yet present. That said, the potential is clearly here as there is real concentration to the very fresh flavors supported by a solidly tannic backbone. One reason I'm persuaded that this will ultimately mature into a fine example is that the finish is extremely complex and long and thus the aromatics should eventually follow." (91pts Allen Meadows, Burghound, Sept 2005)

    "For two decades this very much seemed stuck in a time capsule as it was evolving glacially but just in the last few years full maturity has finally arrived. The hallmark spice of a great La Tâche is present in spades with outstanding aromatic complexity that includes plenty of secondary fruit development but at this point, no sous bois. There is excellent concentration to the velvety and wonderfully rich flavors that display the same wonderful depth of the nose, all wrapped in a mouth coating, delicious and hugely long finish." (94 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound, Apr. 2012)


    Estimate: $14,000 - $18,000.
