Ratings & Tasting notes:
95 points Allen Meadows – Burghound
The nose evidences a slight floral quality, and a fascinating mix of earth, leather, tea and spice notes plus an interesting green bark component. The slightly austere, tannic, wonderfully rich flavors are dense, in fact extremely dense with excellent depth and terrific complexity and a finish that seems to go on forever. Though there are now hints of secondary aromas, this remains very young, structured and remarkably intense. When you get the right bottle, the ’93 can be a real stunner. (6/2016)
95 points Wine Spectator
Light red. Beautiful nose, very youthful and pure. A vegetal note emerges with air. Packed with dense fruit and marked by a very firm structure of both acidity and dense tannins. The fruit is locked up right now in this massive, powerful La Tâche. Rather than open in the glass, this appears to close up, but have faith; this will be great. (BS) (6/2006)
Stored in a climate controlled cellar on its side in the dark at 55 degrees F and 75% humidity since purchase.
Perfect fill level, capsule and wine clarity.
