1991 DRC La Tache - Burghound- Tasted: Jan 10, 2012: I have long been an admirer of this wine as it is dazzlingly elegant and very densely fruited with knock out aromas of spice, dried rose petals, clove, anise and black pepper that are followed by somewhat austere, rich, concentrated and gorgeously persistent flavors that exude a fine minerality on the gorgeously long finish. The intensity here is really something to see and it just oozes class and refinement. It's worth pointing out that this is sufficiently close to its peak that it could be approached now with an hour's worth of air. Multiple examples and very consistent notes, in fact I've never had a substandard bottle.
