Spicy, rich, and many-layered, the La Tâche 1971 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti’ comes intact with its original wooden case. It was brought by its current owner for his son’s wedding, however, it ended up remaining unopened ever since.

The exclusive French wine will be offered for sale along with a 1969 Magnum of Domaine dela Romanee-Conti Romanee-Conti which is estimated to sell anywhere between $30,000-$40,000. Both bottles will go under the hammer at Bonhams Skinner’s upcoming online sale of fine wines and rare spirits which will be held between October 17-27, 2022.
