For two decades this very much seemed stuck in a time capsule as it was evolving glacially but just in the last few years full maturity has finally arrived. The hallmark spice of a great La Tâche is present in spades with outstanding aromatic complexity that includes plenty of secondary fruit development but at this point no sous bois. There is excellent concentration to the velvety and wonderfully rich flavors that display the same wonderful depth of the nose all wrapped in a mouth coating delicious and hugely long finish. This is a wine that I have had any number of times but this most recent bottle is easily the best that I have ever tried.
