1990 Domaine de la Romanee-Conti La Tache Grand Cru Monopole, Cote de Nuits, France

It has been more than year since my last post on my blog, and I have been immensely missing writing. As I do not have time to really mess around anymore and write super long, detailed post for now, I will just plunge directly into the main subject of interest for this blog: Wine!

And I will start by digging into some old notes that I always wanted to post but never really had the time to. Therefore, you may see a lot of various posts with wines that I tasted at different period of time, not necessarily in alphabetical or even chronological order. I wish I could have a website as organized and clean as eparker.com with listing and so on, but for now, I will just deliver these notes in a terrible mess and chaos, just as they come.....



1990 Domaine de la Romanee-Conti La Tache Grand Cru Monopole, Cote de Nuits, France (price range from 3,200-4,200 Euros a bottle)

Beautiful robe in the glass with a light, youthful, bright garnet color of medium intensity. Mushroom, earth, soil mingled with delicious red and dark cherry fruit aromas enhanced with floral notes. The palate showed well in terms of balance and overall structure, but seemed a little tired in terms of fruit and texture, tasting slightly older than it should, a bit faded. The finish also presented some sharpness that was a bit out of place. Tasted on 20.10.2012
