(DRC La Tache) The next wine was garden city in the nose, quite pungent with lots of animal and game aromas. The palate was rich and delicious with great tomato, rose and iron flavors. It reminded me of 1980, something which Sir Robert heartily seconded. It was another rarely seen vintage, 1940 DRC La Tache (96).
(DRC La Tache) The 1940 DRC La Tache took it up another level. Original bottles and DRC both tend to do that. It was classic La Tache, ripe and full of garden, tomato, rose, animal, earth, Worchester, meat, citrus, flesh and bones. I had never had a wine from 1940, but these two made me think that this vintage is truly a forgotten one.
