La Tache dinner (The Boardl Room at Capella Hotel Georgetown): The label is almost illegible. The cork at the top is most and covered with black gunk. It is hard to pull the cork which is a great sign. The cork came out intact and 1950 is clearly visible. This is a great old La Tache. Light color with a hint of brown but clear and bright. Decadent light caramel, slightly diluted raspberry jam, a hint of sous bois but not strong, grilled mushroom, smoke, soy and gentle Asian spice. Fully resolved seamless sweet palate, lovely long finish. Delicate yet not shy. A great privilege, an emotional experience. I can drink this all night.
I loved this wine. It is quite shy, light color wine. Nice tea, caramel, butter, almond paste, typical Vosne spice. Extreme impressive palate like the 89 Y’Quem that I had recently in that once it hits the palate, it just evaporates. Nice acidity and long finish. It is a delicate lady with very firm and strong core/soul.
