La Tâche, Domaine de la Romanée Conti 1989

Tasting Notes

Still quite firm and tight with a rather reserved personality yet showing glimpses of the hallmark exotic spices, particularly clove and cinnamon. Densely tannic yet with plenty of concentration and buffering extract, this is ripe, rich and full with a complete and satisfying finish. One of the few 89s that is still in need of extended cellaring time and I wouldn't touch a bottle before 2007.
