    (La Tache) had a mature, musky, meaty, brown sugared nose with flavors of beef, soy, leather and oat. It was not as good as the bottle I had at CRU at the weekend of the Top 100, but still excellent although more advanced. Paul joked that the 1942 had 'something' about it, like 'Grenache.' He was kidding

    Top 100 Weekend Teaser, 11/13/2005 95 points

    (La Tache.) Someone uttered 'amazing' right away. The nose was so deep . big, rich and long. Rob summed it up as 'ridiculous,' which is another high compliment in Big Boy's world. Musk oil, leather and deep, dark rich fruit oozed out of its nose. The palate was enormous, expanding like a tidal wave in the mouth at first, and Allen also found it 'incredibly vibrant.' Long and spiny, the wine was a bit massive but smoothed out sooner rather than later, costing it a point or two in the grand scheme of things, but for those first twenty minutes or so, it was even more extraordinary
