2001 La Tâche Grand Cru, Domaine de la Romanée-Conti

2001 La Tâche Grand Cru, Domaine de la Romanée-Conti

Ref: DRC015
Red  |  Still  |  13% ABV

Two hectares of Vosne vineyards owned by the church were bought by the de Croonembourg family in 1631, renaming the land Romanée and adding the neighbouring La Tâche. In 1760 the holding was acquired - following a bidding war with the king of France's mistress - by the Prince de Conti. The vineyards were appropriated by the state during the revolution and, having changed hands a couple of times, ended up in the possession of Jacques-Marie Duvault-Blochet in 1869. Duvault-Blochet subsequently added parcels of Echézeaux, Grands Echézeaux and Richebourg. The five-and-a-bit hectares of Romanée-St-Vivant were leased to the domaine by the Morey-Monge family in 1966 with the sale finally agreed in 1988. Together the DRC range constitutes some of the world's most sought-after and expensive wines.

Tasting Notes
Tasting Notes


"While it's hard to believe, the nose has become even more elegant with age and has retained its strikingly extravagant panoply of rose petals, oriental spices, pungent tea and leather notes plus ultra refined pinot fruit. The powerful, chiseled, pure flavors are remarkably detailed, precise and fine with mind bending complexity yet for all the emotional drama of this wine, it remains understated and almost aloof at the moment. The finish is dense, structured and still firm though there is nary a hard edge to be found and while this too cannot rival the other worldly 1999 (see herein), 2001 will one day be thought of as a genuinely excellent vintage for La Tâche. In short, aristocratic in every sense. Note that while this is certainly not yet quite ready for prime time, it is approaching the point where it could be opened with pleasure." Burghound

Sweetness Explained
Sweetness Explained


All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab. 

Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
