La Tâche is a small grand cru vineyard in the village of Vosne-Romanée, at the heart of Burgundy’s Cote de Nuits. It covers 6 hectares (15 acres) of land planted to Pinot Noir, and is a monopole of the iconic Domaine de la Romanée-Conti. The single wine made at La Tâche is full-bodied and structured, and is one of the most expensive and sought-after wines in the world.
The vineyard occupies a very particular spot on the mid-slope of the Côte d’Or, at the very southern end of Vosne-Romanée. Its only grand cru neighbor is the La Grande Rue vineyard, which has only had grand cru status since 1992. The Aux Malconsorts Premier Cru vineyard separates La Tâche from the commune border with Nuits-Saint-Georges.
