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. The climate of these localities is ideal for the growth of the Grands Crus made with Pinot Noir. The rocky soil, a mixture of scree that came from the combe de Concoeur, has a draining effect, which is perfect for the vineyard's well-being.
