the 2007 La Tâche is a beautiful wine in the making, with the red fruity side of the vintage very much in evidence on both the nose and palate. As I look back over my notes on older vintages of La Tâche, I always seem to have preferred these more red fruity and citric vintages of La Tâche (i.e. 1966 and 1972) over more plummy and blackberry vintages (1959 or 1971), as they seem to convey the inimitable complexity of La Tâche’s terroir with more precision and urgency. In that regard, the 2007 looks very promising indeed. The nose is stunning, as it soars from the glass in a beautiful mélange of cherries, raspberries, blood orange, Vosne spices, duck, orange zest, woodsmoke, soil and cedar. On the palate the wine is deep, fullish, long and tangy, with fine acidity, rather gentle tannins (particularly for young La Tâche), but great grip on the very long and refined finish Read more

Bruce Sanderson - Wine Spectator

Different than the rest of the range from barrel and different in bottle, with a nose that's unevolved, dense and spicy. Displays deep, rich blackberry, black currant and licorice flavors on the palate, building and expanding to the long mineral finish

Neal Martin - Vinous

The 2007 La Tâche Grand Cru is a vintage that I have not tasted since bottling. Now 11 years old, it shows extremely well in the context of the growing season. Almost delicate red fruit springs from the glass, wild strawberry and morello cherries mingling with undergrowth and tree-bark-like scents, becoming more floral with aeration and yet never powerful. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, almost lace-like tannins more redolent of Romanée-Conti. This displays wonderful precision and is lean in style for a La Tâche, but the sense of energy and athleticism is completely endearing. Tasted in November 2018 at the Roumier Musigny dinner at Épure in Hong Kong. Drink through 2035.
