  • Clean. Clear. Very, very, very intense. Lots of concentration, heavy with superb elegance, ripe almost sweet fruits, some oak. Seamless on the palate, extremely well balanced, . No point in a longer note. Very, very long finish.

    A superb wine!

  • A memorable dinner wtih Barolis and Burgundy (Fleet Street Kitchen - Baltimore, MD): Only four month ago this was perfectly expressive from the get go but not so this time. Initially reticent nose, a hint of green, smoke, crushed blackberries, sesame, lavender and earth. Intense sweet palate, beautifully integrated tannins and acidity. With air, the nose becomes a bit more expressive, vonse spice, blackberry essence, coffee, sesame, sap, tea and earth. Excellent concentration and balance. I was expecting the perfect wine but not so and I preferred the perfectly matured 96 and that’s how it goes sometimes. Impressive but not a perfect showing.

  • The youngest wine in this lineup.

    Dark/purple color, running through the rim; exhibited a whiff of light violet in the aromas, together with the spice laden dark cherry fruit – some definite new oak in the back; big and powerful; vigorous entry; firm structure; rich and full, with huge concentration; mouth coating fruit – dark berries, but sufficient to hold above the tannins – nice clean acidity – quite fresh actually; shoots back on the palate and extends out to a very long finish, with waves of fruit. A massive wine at this juncture, but another 12 years should harness this wine sufficiently for drinking – believe Allen Meadows’ assessment of holding until 2034 is excessive……but he has drunk a lot more La Tache than I have.

  • Top 09 and 10 red Burgundy tasting (Capital Grill at Tysons corner, VA): From the get go, it is incredibly sexy and delicious, black fruits, a hint of tea, sap, delicate white pepper and earth. The palate is incredibl. Intense dark sweet fruits, airy silky palate, perfectly integrated acidity and tannins. It is drinking so beautifully at the moment that even without considering the potential, the wine flirts with perfection.

  • It built in the glass and showed aromas and flavours of Hoisin, cherry skins, blood plum, aniseed and earth. In the mouth it was rich and velvety and the finish was very long. It is a good La Tache but perhaps not up there with the very best.
