Tasting Notes

Vinous – 92

The 2009 La Tâche Grand Cru has tasted brilliantly before, though this bottle was not in the same leagues. It is quite a high-toned, flashy bouquet with just a touch of VA that ebbs with aeration, though never fully. There is a soupçon of dark chocolate that infuses the red fruit. Interestingly, this was always a heady La Tâche, but this bottle seems to take that a step too far. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, plenty of bitter cherries and crushed red berries laced with tobacco. It’s “fat” on the finish with a reasonably generous, spicy end. Fine, but I was surprised when its identity was revealed. Better bottles out there or a wine whose future is not guaranteed to elicit superlatives? Tasted blind at the 2009 horizontal at Club 1243.

Robert Parker – 97

The 2009 La Tache is a very subtle wine. It boasts incredible richness and depth, yet remains elusive. Silky, impossibly refined tannins frame the seamless, resonant finish. Nothing in particular stands out. Everything is simply in the right place. Anticipated maturity: 2024-2059. [Antonio Galloni, 01/04/2012]

JancisRobinson.com – 19.0

Very dark crimson. Heady violet nose – transports of delight all right. Pure fruit intensity. Jewelly. Vey sweet start and then wonderfully polished tannins. A slightly brûlée note. Sheer hedonism with the tannins all but covered up. Great freshness on the finish too. Very appetising and very Vosne. Very rich and unspittable. Wonderful finish combines freshness and richness.

Anticipated maturity: 2020-2040
