Winemaker's Notes

La Tâche 2004 is dark in color and has a lovely licorice expression typical of La Tâche. In the mouth, this wine is long and rich. A classic wine - a wine of charm and distinction; complete, profound and balanced.

Critical Acclaim

"Although this wine is very firm and closed at the outset, it opens—and keeps opening in the mouth—to offer great fruit flavors. It is finely balanced, very pure, combining an ethereal character with the proper feet-in-the-soil taste of great Pinot Noir. Age for 20 years, if you can bear to wait. "
96 Points

"Good bright, deep red. Wonderfully perfumed, nuanced nose offers raspberry, smoke, earth, white truffle and this vineyard's typical cocktail of Oriental spices. Compellingly silky-sweet and suave on the palate, with great aromatic lift to the red fruit, spice and mineral flavors. This offers a rare combination of high and low tones on the nose and palate. Taut and sharply focused wine, finishing with superb, palate-saturating minerally persistence and great finesse of tannins. A great 2004."
