(DRC La Tache) was robust yet oxidized, and after the Vieux Cepages, I couldn’t go through the motions of taking notes for this affected bottle. Ironically, the 1934 La Tache was probably the best looking bottle of the tasting going in
(La Tache) While 1934 is a great vintage, this particular bottle seemed a little watered down, though that is the wrong word. There were some spiny edges underneath and nice earth, musk, vitamin and stalk aromas. Flavors of band-aid and earth were on its sturdy palate, but it had that reconditioned feeling, though the finish really came through. Someone said, 'if it weren't sitting next to the 1962, you'd like it better. The '62 shows its flaws.' Allen agreed by saying, 'I like it, but it ran into a buzzsaw. '34, '59, '90, '99 - all very high quality and big volume, which is rare
