I have never been a fan of the domaine's 1989s, and the 1989 La Tache Grand Cru is no exception. Now showing some bricking on the rim, it has a rather herbaceous and earthy nose, a little muddled compared to superior vintages such as 1991. There is a subtle ferrous note, later a slight vegetal scent. The palate is rustic with furry tannin, moderate acidity and weight but clearly missing the finesse and the sophistication that you normally find on a La Tache. It sort of "stumbles" over the finish line. It's not a bad Burgundy for the vintage, but it is not a great La Tache. Tasted June 2017. Aug 2017, www.robertparker.com
