The 2014 La Tâche Grand Cru is a very refined nose, so much so that blind I might mistake it from Romanée-Conti (as I opined to Bertrand de Villaine himself). Very precise, extremely pure and with wonderful mineralité, there is a lucidity embroidered into this wine. The palate is medium-bodied, symmetrical, with a little edginess creeping in here that lends the finish a sense of animation. The fruit shades from red to more black as it opens, yet the aftertaste is extraordinarily long and persistent. There is a kind of magic in this La Tâche.
