Tasting Notes

Quite deeply colored with the classic La Tâche nose of dried rose petals plus a fantastic array of aromas and spices too numerous to even try to describe that lead to fine, detailed and beautifully textured flavors and terrific length. This is not a La Tâche for the ages as it simply doesn't have the structure and density to enable it to age for two decades or more but it is remarkably complex and has sneaky finishing intensity. I like this a lot for its superb style, grace and penetrating minerality but those who expect the usual level of power and structure won't find it in the 2000. This is actually approachable now though it should age for at least two decades simply on the incredible balance that it displays. A terrific effort for the vintage but this clearly does not have the freshness and precision of the 2001.
