Discover the La Tâche appellation
The AOC La Tâche is a Grand Cru red wine produced in Vosne-Romanée, in the Côte de Nuits. The name comes from an old burgundian saying: "faire une tâche", which litteraly means "to cultivate a vineyard for a fee". La Tâche, monopoly of the Domaine de La Romanée-Conti since 1933, had 4 different owners since the early 17th century. Grafts have helped the grapevines flourish and thanks to this, the Romanée-Conti vineyard was reborn between 1947 and 1948. This strenghtened the bond between the two wine appellations.
The vineyard englobes two localities: Les Gaudichots and La Tâche (hence the name), for a total surface of 6 hectares and a yearly output of 150 hectoliters of wine. The climate of these localities is ideal for the growth of the Grands Crus made with the famous Pinot Noir grape variety. The rocky soil is a mixture of scree (that came from the combe de Concoeur), marls and limestone, which has a draining effect. These conditions are simply perfect for the well-being of the La Tâche vineyard.
