We always want to get our hottest stock in front of you as soon as we acquire it.
We recently acquired 7 Bottles of the 99 Pointer DRC La Tache 2018 in Mint condition. We have one bottle in stock and the other 6 bottles are on the way to our warehouse arriving at the end of next week.
Critic, Jasper Morris says it right when he said: “most successful 2018 reds hit heights only found in the greatest vintages.” La Tache 2018 is definitely one of those wines!
Our price on these are really sharp $5,995 per bottle. La Tache 2019 & 2020 is selling for around $7,500/BTL which makes the 2018 a great value.
The 2018 DRC La Tache is an Allen Meadows 99 point wine! Please see tasting notes below.
“outstanding volume to the big, muscular and robust flavors that also possess focused power where the intensity does a slow build from the mid-palate to the explosively long and decidedly austere finish that just lasts and lasts” – Antonio Galloni
"This is unusually cool and airy in the context of what is typical in 2018 with its restrained and beautifully layered nose of rose petal, violet, lavender, lilac, sandalwood and soy nuances that add incredible breadth to the mostly red berry-suffused aromas, all of which is trimmed in very subtle oak influence. There is outstanding volume to the big, muscular and robust flavors that also possess focused power where the intensity does a slow build from the mid-palate to the explosively long and decidedly austere finish that just lasts and lasts. This is somewhat less 2018 in style than the prior wines though it is clearly quite ripe. It is also a bit less refined than it usually is, at least at this early stage, though to be fair it is still in its formative stages so we will see how it comes along with more aging. I would observe though that it is already abundantly clear that this is a stunningly great LT; indeed it may well rival the 1999 in time, is going to develop quite slowly over a very long period." – BH99
"A gorgeous rich imperial purple, with savoury characters over and above the others. The aromatics suggest a heart that stretches ever deeper. What a weight of fruit is there, how noble in reason. In a vintage like 2018 the fruit weight completely subdues the tannins, which are always a little bit more evident in La Tâche. The fruit shows this extraordinary dark raspberry character perfectly on the cusp of red and black, anting to be floral at the same time. Pens out from its more vertical style, with a sweetness of fruit to finish." - 98 Jasper Morris
