Tasted at the La Tâche vertical at The Square. I tasted the La Tâche 1991 twice within 24 hours: the first ex-domaine and the second purchased from auction in Switzerland, both with Aubert de Villaine present. The former was the best, right? Wrong. It was actually the second that clearly delivered, the ex-domaine example so brutally backward that it was more impressive than a wine to love. That was not the case with the second. The nose was unapologetically ethereal with mineral-laden black fruit with hints of cold wet limestone and peaty moorland on a gloomy winter's day. The precision is quite astonishing. The palate is perfectly balanced as it glides effortlessly across the mouth, intense rather than powerful, a gentle crescendo that fans out gracefully on the finish. I have always had faith in the 1991 La Tâche and now it is coming out of the shadow of the 1990 and proving once and for all, which wine is the greater. - Neal Martin

("a great wine and it may eventually equal the 1990" - Aubert de Villaine). I have long been an admirer of this wine as it is dazzlingly elegant and very densely fruited with knock out aromas of spice dried rose petals clove anise and black pepper followed by somewhat austere rich concentrated and gorgeously persistent flavors. The intensity here is really something to see and it just oozes class and refinement. Note that while this could be approached now with an hour's worth of air it will certainly continue to develop. Multiple bottles and consistent notes.

Very good color. This is fresh and succulent with saturated cherry and currant flavors. It's bright and well balanced but the dense tannins dominate the finish. A muscular style that requires time yet.--La Tâche non-blind... Very good color. This is fresh and succulent with saturated cherry and currant flavors.
