Domaine de la Romanee-Conti, or DRC for short, is one of the most famous and most expensive wineries in Burgundy, France.
The winery has 25 hectares of vineyards, distributed in the two production areas of Cote de Beaune and Cote de Nuits, with a total of 8 top vineyard wines: La Rimanne-Conti, La Tache, Richebourge, Romanee-Saint-Vivant, Grand Echezeaux, Montrachet , each bottle is a combination of excellent brewing factors, such as the winery's use of low-yield old vine grapes to brew, with careful care and strict selection, only then can the unique terroir be transformed into the wonderful flavor in the bottle.
DRC wines are usually known for being thick, complex, and surprisingly capable of hiding, but more often than not, it is the rarity and mystery in them that makes people want to find out.
The La Tâche 1990 sports a deep garnet core with brick rim. The palate is obviously from a relatively warm Burgundy vintage and delivers a surfeit of ripe, juicy and powerful red fruit infused with black truffle, leather and mint, with time a touch of rose petals. It gains more and more delineation with time. The palate is full-bodied and for La Tâche, quite sinewy with layers of intense, rounded, svelte red berry fruit with just a touch of piquancy. It has an enormous structure and undeniable presence.
