94 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
This is a brilliant 1983 that should continue to evolve magnificently over the next two decades. Dark ruby, with a huge nose of smoky, exotic, ripe Pinot fruit, leather, and minerals. In the mouth, this is the most powerful La Tache of the last decade, with whoppingly high alcohol, hard tannins, and superb concentration and length. It should be at its apogee between 1996-2010. (4/1992)
Domaine de la Romanee-Conti is unquestionably Burgundy’s most famous estate, and among serious oenophiles, it may be the most famous wine estate in the world. Its Grand Cru Pinot Noirs and one Chardonnay regularly command some of the highest prices for any wine produced anywhere in the world, and according to many reviewers the wines are generally celestial. Though its history is complicated, the domaine is now owned by several long-time Burgundy families, with some owners holding just a very few shares. The 62.5 acres of vineyard owned by the domaine are planted to Pinot Noir and a small amount of Chardonnay. The wines produced are Grands Echezeaux, Echezeaux, Romanee-St.-Vivant, Montrachet, Richebourg, Romanee-Conti, and La Tache. Of the Pinot Noirs, the rarest is the Romanee-Conti, with an annual production of only 450 cases. The most plentiful, theoretically, is La Tache, produced in quantities of about 1,900 cases annually.
