Community Tasting Note

  • Keith Levenberg wrote: 97 points

    June 8, 2010 - Champagnes and Burgundies (Gramercy Tavern): This was impressive, but also somewhat reserved, showing what it has to offer in more cumulative fashion from sip to sip than the immediate knockout effect of the Richebourg. You have to pay attention. It showed less fruit than its brethren, probably because La Tâche seems to be Ground Zero for the middle eastern spice-bazaar characteristics of Vosne-Romanée, which played a much bigger role in the ultimate flavor (and aroma) here than the fruit did. The effect was a fractal of spices amidst pale reddish fruit, easily making this the most detailed and complex wine in the lineup. But part of the effect of the spiciness and the more reserved fruit was to give this a dustier, grittier texture than the other wines -- not as silky or pampering, making this a little less hedonistic and a little more cerebral than the others. #02155.
