La Tâche is the thoughtful middle sibling, more focused than the slightly brash Richebourg, and richer and fuller than the refined La Romanée-Conti. This vineyard especially requires time in bottle to truly reveal its subtle complexities. This is another of DRC’s monopole Grand Cru vineyards and produces fewer than 2000 cases a year. The 2016 gave this middle child succulence and structure enveloped in velvety tannins and sweet cedary new oak. Antonio Galloni mused. “There is a gentle crescendo from start to finish, though being La Tâche it retains complete control. The precision and detail in the final third are deeply impressive. Less fruit-forward than the 2015, and lightly spiced, with an insistent grip. There is a captivating sense of completeness that will ensure longevity through three or four decades.” One of the few wines that holds a mythic reputation and truly lives up to it.
