Candied violets dancing along the top. Lovely sweet palate entry and real life and lift. Dry but not drying finish and such confident structure. Lissom. Very firm finish and wonderfully sappy appetising undertow. Not heavy at all.
Subdued but very pure and nuanced aromas of tangy red fruits, flowers, Oriental spices, licorice and crushed stone, plus an exhilarating hint of peach. Wonderfully suave on entry, then rich, ripe, dry and sharply delineated...
...spicy essence of red berry fruit aromas to emerge...where there is a slight hint of herbal tea present. There is a similar reserve to the distinctly focused and linear flavors that enjoy a seemingly unlimited reserve of dry extract.
...wonderful bouquet that is quintessential La Tache: very complete and harmonious, beautifully delineated, succinct at first then with aeration, blossoming with brambly red berries, apple blossom, minerals and a touch of sous-bois.
Sweet floral and savory notes meld into expressive red fruit in a wine that impresses for its lifted, weightless personality and total class. Crushed flowers, anise and sweet red berries wrap around the resonant, super-polished finish.
