Pepper and raspberry leaves on the nose. Round perfectly balanced not quite ripe raspberry. Can you say perfection???? Indescribable.

Initially a sniff of charcoal oak then the beautiful fragrance kicks in - violets developing. Amazing Intensity - refined power. Coats your mouth. Beautiful long persistent finish. Glorious. When revealed as La Tache, this was the Wine that stole the show at last years Grand Cru Tasting. Not as superior to Romanee Conti as it was last year - more on a par but they say in very good years that Romanee Conti will outlive La Tache but if you are over 60 you probably won’t be around to find out!

Difficult to rate at this early stage. Suffice to say this wine runs the gamut of fragrance with raspberry, citrus-orange rind, stem and oak. Similar flavors braced by ample acidity and tannins; long finish. The wine closed down after 30 mins, then blossomed again about 1 hour later. The extraction seemed lighter than expected but perhaps this is a function of the challenging vintage. A kaleidoscope wine to be sure and one that requires quiet cellaring for many years. Very special night to experience this wine at Angele in Napa!
