Underbara toner av mogen Bourgogne. Mogna hallon och rosor både i doft och smak. Väldigt elegant och sammetslen med alla beståndsdelar på plats. En väldigt bra flaska men en otroligt ren och fin textur.
La Tache dinner (The Boardl Room at Capella Hotel Georgetown): Good color but a bit cloudy. Wet moss and dirty damp cellar that didn’t go away for me. Also remnant of plum and dry cherries, mint, oatmeal and wet earth. Good concentration and acidity but bit dirty. Most dinners preferred this to the 53 by a good margin.
La Paulée de New York Gala Dinner (New York, NY): Brief Paulee tasting note. What a sensational surprise. Very good combination of well reduced porcini mushroom, chinese five spice and robust red and black cherry. Aromas and flavors perfectly aligned. Long and elegant.
only had a sip but classic mature nose with ripe cherry flavors. Lots of secondary characteristics but with little acidity left it is probably beginning to come off from its peak. Then again, how could one complain!
Soft garnet color and prominent nose of rosewater. Stylistically this reminds me quite a bit of the '59 Leroy Grands Echezeaux I had a couple of weeks ago, although the Leroy was superior. A majestic wine giving all it has, drink up. B+

(DRC La Tache) The next red courtesy of Eddie had an earthy, gamy nose that had great meat to it. The flavors were more tender with sour cherry notes along with carob and citrus. The menthol and mesquite were admirable, but it was soft in the mouth overall, still excellent. It was a 1969 DRC La Tache, which some preferred to the ‘64. I just felt like saying, ‘Eddieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee’.
(Romanée-Conti La Tâche) Medium colour. The nose starts rather closed vs the other wines, taking rather a while to develop - ends up like a less intense, perhaps 'junior' 1978 - no bad thing! The palate is less explosive than most of the others, but the intensity still grows and grows in your mouth. Perfect texture and lovely acidity. It has everything that the other wines have, but on a slightly lower register - perhaps it's starting to fade - it is, however, a beautiful thing.
