(DRC La Tache) The second wine in this flight had ‘La Tache’ qualities per King Angry. There was similar volume here, with hints of good stink. It was nutty, beefy and rusty; the nose was so deep, I got lost. The wine had a similar finish, its acid crackling and high pitch singing brightly. Big, round and decadent, this wine ‘screamed La Tache, a great La Tache’ per Sir Robert. It should have, as it was the 1945 DRC La Tache, courtesy of Jim and Wendy (96+).
(DRC La Tache) was more beefy and chunky with some wood and iodine, the wood being a bit much and mushroomy and nutty, by itself probably great but 'paled in comparison' to the RC according to Frank. The bottle was a touch affected and maderized
