INFORMATION OF INTEREST DRC La Tache 2013
Colour: Coppery red wine, chocolate, with hints of bricks.
Aroma: It is fragrant, ripe, some reminiscences to charcoal, notes of fig leaves, aniseed, chocolate.
Taste: We appreciate very refined tannins, polished, interesting for its long ageing in bottle, so decanted it will improve. Some reminiscences of dry leaves, spirits notes. We are certainly against one of the great wines of Burgundy.
We will accompany him with dishes of a power taste very soft, grilled meats, little spicy, or for example, wagyu meat (beef, its the caviar of meat).
We are facing a 1.8-acre vineyard in the heart of the Côte de Nuits - under the name of La Romanée-Conti- whose boundaries have remained unchanged for the past 4 centuries. Posted questioned in the 50s, because of the need to replant the vineyard, the property has been recovered soon noble height and visibility.
From the selection of varieties to the bottled without air or filtration, nothing is neglected, to get great wines of ageing: long fermentation and ageing in new oak barrels. The man's hand here is, therefore, omnipresent, but here are fond of saying that "wines are those made alone." In addition, it performs a selection based on the vintage: for this reason did not turn out the Romanée-Conti in 1950 and the Echézeaux in 1965.
The property belongs to two families and is directed by their representatives Aubert de Villaine and Henry Frédéric Roch, the latter's successor Marcelle (Lalou) Bize-Leroy in 1992.
