96 points John Gilman

The 2004 La Tâche is a brilliant example of the vintage in the making, with stunning complexity already in evidence on the both the nose and palate, despite the wine still being very youthful. The beautiful bouquet offers up a very complex blend of red and black cherries, beetroot, vinesmoke, a great base of soil, bitter chocolate, fresh herbs and just a touch of spicy oak. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, deep and brilliantly focused, with a great core of fruit, beautiful balance and great length and grip on the tangy and moderately tannic finish. All this great wine needs is more time in the cellar. (3/2009)

95 points Burghound

This too is sublime in its subtlety and grace with ineffably pure aromas and it strikes a balance between the opulence of the RSV and the restraint of the GE with an expressive yet ultra fine nose of rose petals, violets and seductive spice notes that introduce unbelievably refined flavors that seem crafted from silk and lace, culminating in a linear, mouth coating finish that detonates like a bomb and lasts and lasts. At present, this is taut and precise with the lithe muscularity of a world class gymnast yet it is not lean or unduly tight as there is a generosity to the mid-palate that serves to buffer the underlying tannic spine that will permit this to age for decades. This is clearly a great wine that epitomizes the concept of power without weight. (1/2007)
