Mellow baking spice on the nose with hints of dried mushroom and a light browning on the back of the nose. Baked dark berries and fruit. Palate displays less precision than the nose, with muddled fruit taking the primary role over spice, earth and other secondaries. Fully mature, drink now
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 med 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.

(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.
