At 32 years old, this has the most incredible gamey, scented bouquet of huge, heathery purity. All pervasive, enveloping all who were tasting. On the palate, an almost honied, cherryish, damp earth taste, with immense persistence and length - it lingered for minutes. Alarmingly beautiful in that unique DRC way. There were notes of charcoal and bright, red fruit but, in the end, it was just La Tâche at its most seductive and alluring. Serena Sutcliffe, MW WA 95
