La Tache 1988

La Tache - Domaine de la Romanee Conti

31 years

The 1988 La Tache reveals a moderately interesting bouquet of Asian spices, dried herbs, earth, and sweet red and black fruits. However, it is surprisingly shallow, medium-bodied, and short on the palate. *** PRODUCTION: 1,678 cases. This wine was spectacular from cask, but tasting it three times from bottle has been a bewildering experience. The color is a disturbingly light to medium ruby. The wine's aromatics exhibit oak, smoke, and vanilla, but little fruit. No amount of coaxing or breathing enhances the wine's bouquet, which appears to crack up with exposure to air. There is moderately high tannin and good concentration, as well as a nasty toughness, suggesting a deficiency in flesh, weight, and extraction. Although it was impressive young, it now appears to be a lightweight La Tache. Will it turn around?
