1990 DRC La Tache Burgundy Magnum - 100 Pts!!

PRODUCTION: 2006 cases. This gets my vote as the greatest La Tache after the 1978 and hopefully an even longer-lived and more complete wine. It is a candidate for the "wine of the vintage" in this highly esteemed Burgundy vintage. The saturated dark ruby/purple color is followed by a developing bouquet that only hints at what will eventually emerge. There is an extraordinary amount of black fruits in the nose as well as a floral component and that exotic Asian spice/smoky scent that the DRC routinely obtains. The new oak takes a back seat to the exceptional quantity of fruit. Full-bodied with noticeable ripe sweet tannin this expansive wine represents an extraordinary expression of Pinot Noir. In spite of the wine's structure it is hard to resist drinking. RP ("a great vintage for La Tache but several others are its equal including 1991 and 1999" - AdV). Stunning massive full-on classic La Tache nose that displays almost unbelievable complexity so with many different elements that it is impossible to even begin to describe them all the primary components include ethereal and still fresh pinot fruit clove knock out spiciness anise hoisin soy and a trace of earth but these elements only hint at the sheer depth. The flavors are big rich refined classy penetrating and superbly powerful yet everything is in perfect balance and there is more than sufficient seve to balance off the still considerable tannins. The finish is intense pure and so long that it is haunting I can literally still taste this wine days later after I've had it because it has such a dramatic and emotional impact. This is one of the finest perhaps even the finest young Burgundy I have ever been privileged to try and it only seems to get better with each passing year. In short this is absolutely brilliant. Consistent notes. BH
