La Tache

Podere Forte

Petrucci Melo Sangiovese 2016

9.7

Wow. This is the other single vineyard from Forte. This is the RC to the La Tache of the Antifeatro. Stunning nose. Perfection. The minerality is just so refined and so vivid. Unreal cherry flower and cherry liqueur. So clean. The cleanest. Leather. Smoke. But the sense of pulverized rocks is incredible. And this is not even 10% expressive. Herbs. Florals. Impossibly fragrant and complex. 9.8 nose now but more room to grow. And it will. Just sick. Palate is so silly good one only shakes their head. Insane concentration. Just massive. Fruit squeeze like nothing else. Ripe and super silky tannins and the finish is that telltale minerality. And man is that finish not quit. Incredible inner mouth aromas and just incredible tiny bit fruit intensity. Tannins are big and ripe but also substantial and need to integrate more. But that finish keeps slowly picking up fruit and length. 9.7 for now and I know this can go all the way 10 when it’s on. Let the journey begin! — 3 months ago

Domaine de la Romanée-Conti (DRC)

Les Gaudichots Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Pinot Noir 1929

Delicate edges with a rose center. A subtle nose with spice, soy, roses, a bit of stink. There’s a salty freshness to this still and gorgeous soft presence. A hint of mint and drying notes on the finish. Pre La Tache. From the Doris Duke cellar. This is unbelievable. — 3 years ago

1 hr. decant & was ready to rock with my Duck 🦆 Dinner 🥘!!! Happy that Gary Pisoni put La Tache cuttings in his dirty underwear in 1983 prior TSA Bullshit & grafted onto vines in his Santa Lucia Highlands vineyard. This “Poor Man’s” La Tache is always Smokin’ great! AG says 95 Points & his review is point on in relationship to the wine. Cheers 🍇🍷👍🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 — 2 years 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. — 2 years ago

Échézeaux Pinot Noir 2009

Seth Morgen Long
9.5

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. — 3 years ago
