La Tache

Domaine Armand Rousseau

Chambertin Grand Cru Pinot Noir 1995

Best bottle I’ve ever had in my life. Blew the 95 La Tache out of the water, and the La Tache wasn’t bad at all. — 5 months ago

Domaine Francois Lamarche

La Grande Rue Grand Cru Monopole Pinot Noir 2016

The 6th and final of the Vosne Romanee Grand Crus. Tasted blind. Red fruited without the intensity on nose and palate of the others in this final group. In past tastings La Grande Rue has been a standout and good value in relative terms but this year it lacked the depth class and intensity of the others in the group. To summarise the Vosne Romanee GC group the consensus of the group was #1 to the DRC RC, Equal 2nd to La Tache and the Thibault Richebourg, 4th to the Hudelot RSV, 5th to La Romanee ( a tough school when a wine as good as this is placed 5th!) and 6th to La Grande Rue. Congratulations to Prince Wine Store for putting this wonderful tasting on every year and being able to source these increasingly rare bottles. Already looking forward to the next one. — 4 years ago

This seemed a little light on the finish. The 76. La Tache is much better — 8 months ago

Romanée-Conti Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2016

The commune we have all been waiting for - Vosne Romanee. The first of 6 Grand Crus tasted blind. In 2 of the 3 previous tastings the first wine in this group has been the DRC RC and when I sampled the breathtaking quality of this wine I was thinking they have done it again. A couple of experts in the group felt the 2 DRC wines were at #1 and #4 This proved to be correct. My notes - Perfume of violets, pepper and Asian Spices. A perfect palate of both feminine charm and latent power ... unbelievable. The La Tache usually shows as more voluptuous in these tastings but not in 2016. I normally don’t have this much left in my glass after the wine has been identified so this was quite a luxury. Just wonderful. As Clive Coates MW said - the yardstick with which to judge all other Burgundies. It is easy to think with the 1000 year history, and the stone cross that there is something spiritual and other worldly about this wine. The consensus from all 12 tasters was that this was the best of the Vosne Romanee tasting and therefore of the whole 34 Grand Crus tasted. Only 440 dozen produced for the world. — 4 years ago

@Mike R Yes Mike, these group tastings are the way to go rather than forking out at best $8000AUD for a bottle and hoping you can live another 20 years to enjoy at its peak 😀🍷

Échézeaux Pinot Noir 2009

Seth Morgen Long

Dense florals, bramble purple spiced fruit, tea and sweet ginger, perhaps there is a slight red fruited rusticity in the Echezeaux next to La Tache, but in its own light, there is a lovely and regal young perfume here supplanted by ample oak which wants to be integrated, but it is beginning to show its core. Love 2009’s. — 4 years ago
