2004 DRC Domaine de la Romanee-Conti La Tache Grand Cru 1500ml Magnum
A broody nose and out of all the wines, this is the one that smells the most stalky. Complex though, very classic, with red-berried fruit, cigar box and a touch of bitter chocolate. The palate is disjointed at first and demands half an hour to meld together. Spicy and muscular, very traditional in style, not flamboyant but broody and sullen. But there is real intensity on the back palate with a green note on the finish. Very long, but this will need patience. Not a wine for those who like a bit of hedonism in their La Tache and without the persistency a great vintages. But still a class act.
