It feels a little more forward than the 1999–a stylish and personality-driven bouquet with predominantly red berry fruit interlaced with warm bricks and undergrowth... The palate is beautifully balanced with exquisite tannin, perfect acidity and an effortless, you might say easygoing personality. That is deceptive because it is a complex and utterly harmonious La Tâche that is the epitome of elegance... Wonderful.
Absolutely stunning aromas of pure cherry, strawberry and raspberry...vibrant, balanced and very elegant, with ripe fruit and tannins and a long finish.
Fat, sweet and full but lively; offers great volume without any undue weight. This shows exciting inner-palate energy and finishes with a sexy, deep core of spice.
...a nose that is exceptionally fine and pure...reveals all of the kaleidoscopic La Tâche spice box nose...broad, expansive and powerful flavors...finish is round, generous, sappy and superbly complex...should easily age for 30 years...
Bright, crystalline and nuanced...speaks more to energy and finesse than the more powerful, resonant expression of the year...
Mid cherry red that's not that dense. Heady, gamey nose. Sweet start with excellent acidity. Sinewy and lively. Very friendly and approachable already. Smooth-textured with real lift. Lots of fun!
