Tasting Notes

This is notably less expressive but not necessarily mute with its restrained aromas of red currant, anise, close, hoisin, sandalwood and once again Asian-style tea, all of which is trimmed in nuances of rose petal and lavender. The remarkably intense and beautifully well-detailed middle weight flavors possess a completely different texture before culminating in a stony, powerful, focused and explosively long finish that delivers sneaky good length because just as it appears to be dying away, it reappears. I wouldn't say that 2014 is going to be one of the all-time great vintages for this most storied of all red burgundies but it certainly should be capable of reaffirming its reputation as the most distinctive wine in Burgundy. Like the La Tâche however note well that plenty of patience is going to be required.
