The Extraordinary 99-Point DRC La Tache 1999‏

DRC 1999 La Tache Header
A Burgundy Icon!
When it comes to must-taste wines there are few that rank above the Domaine de la Romanee-Conti La Tache from 1999.
A monopoly of the Domaine de la Romanee-Conti this vineyard dates back to 1622.
The 1999 is one of the true wine icons. Right from release this wine was absolutely exceptional and today it consistently receives all-but-perfect scores from major critics.
We have 4 bottles available from an exceptional cellar. The wines have been professionally stored since release.

DRC La Tache 2
Everything that I saw from cask made it into bottle intact and words remain inadequate to describe just how good this wine is as the '99 is a classic La Tâche in every respect with its incredibly pure, marvelously intense oriental spice box nose that merges seamlessly into big, rich and enveloping flavors of hoisin and pure pinot extract of indescribable complexity and length. The big tannins are completely wrapped in velvet and the finish simply does not quit. This is destined to become one of the all-time great vintages of La Tâche and even at 98 points, it's clear that I was too conservative and thus I am raising my score accordingly. Moreover, among the many bottles that I have been blessed to have tried, I have never had a bottle that was anything less than sensational. However, note that the '99 LT is going to be a long-distance runner so a strategy of cellar and forget is strongly advised, at least for the next decade or so. Multiple, and consistent, notes

John Kapon: 
Last and never least was a 1999 DRC La Tache, which was clearly the best in our flight of the last three. Its nose was so deep; it felt like I could literally dive into its aromas. There was an oceanic feel to the breadth of its violet fruit. That plush 1999 signature fruit was everywhere. Sweet caramel and nut were balanced by smoke in this behemoth of a nose. The finish was so thick, I had to undo and work the wine back out of my mouth after each sip. It is rare that a wine this young makes me do cartwheels and handstands, but the '99 LT is that great, especially for such a young wine. Stem and stalk flavors added zip and vim to the fantastic fruit. So long, so strong and so balanced, the 1999 DRC La Tache is an anywhere, anytime wine that has never delivered anything but an extraordinary experience. 99 Points

Vesuvio Label
Quinta do Vesuvio Vintage Port 
9 Bottle Collection
The history of Quinta do Vesuvio dates back to 1565. However, it was not until 1989, when the Symington family acquired the property, that the full potential of the Quinta began to be realized.
The house produces a vintage port almost every year. The aim is to create a terroir-driven wine which reflects the differences from year to year.
Michael Schuster, writing in The World of Fine Wine magazine, concludes "Year in, year out, the quality remains remarkably consistent, but as with any fine Bordeaux château or Burgundy cru, the character of the year is reflected in the wine."
We have available one complete run of Quinta do Vesuvio from the 1990's. The 9-Bottle Collection includes one bottle from each vintage from 1990 to 1999 (excluding 1993 which was not produced).
A hard to assemble collection of aged Vintage Port at a very reasonable price.
$1350.00 the 9-Bottle Collection
