Deep ruby. Once again a highly reticent nose only grudgingly gives up discreet, if attractively perfumed, notes of rose petal, spice and an ultra-pure assortment of red berry fruit scents. Like the Riche this possesses that wonderful inner mouth perfume that makes the Vosne grand crus justifiably so famous. There is wonderful intensity to the sleek big-bodied flavors that display plenty of punch and authority on the impeccably well-balanced and hugely long and very firmly structured finish. While La Tâche is often a very powerful wine, the 2013 version seems particularly so and it would be accurately described as a beautiful combination of power and refinement.

Aubert de Villaine remarked that there is "one more dimension" to the 2013 La Tâche Grand Cru and that he would be in no hurry to bottle it. The barrel sample makes an immediate impression on the nose. It is immeasurably complex with cranberry and pomegranate scents at first, autumn woodland accompanied by candied orange peel and limestone scents. The palate is very complex and beautifully balanced. Perfect acidity, surfeit with tension, this La Tâche gradually crescendos to a pixelated finish that has enormous persistence in the mouth. Stunning. Rating: 96-98 Points; Date: Dec 2014; Neal Martin; #216
