($430) Good full red. Superripe aromas of red fruits, minerals and earth. Highly concentrated but also quite backward today and hard to view. Very long and gripping on the back end but comes across as a bit tough today, despite conveying an impression of great flavor precision. "This was always good to taste in barrel," notes de Villaine, although I recall that it was a bit folded in on itself last November.

Already a little ruby/orange note at the rim but much deeper colour than the Échézeaux, Medium intensity on the nose. Starting to knit together but not a knock-out obvious Tâche at this stage on the nose initially. A little suppressed at the moment but peacock’s tail finish (as with the 2005), most impressive – perhaps the most impressive thing about this wine at the moment. Hint of mushrooms.

Earth-laced blackberries can be discerned in the nose of the 2001 La Tache. Suave, plush, and regal, it boasts loads of candied black fruits in its deep character. This supple wine reveals superb clarity of fruit and an impressively long, fruit-filled finish.

Unbelievable, but very young
