    March 8, 2013 - Kleur: Volrood Aroma / bouquet: Gesloten, wat donker fruit, kersen, geparfumeerd (vooral bloemig), chicque. Smaak / Afdronk: Matige zuurgraad, ronde tannines, vol, zeer drinkbaar. Algemeen / potentieel: Opvallend moderne en open wijn. Nu heerlijk drinkbaar, maar geen groot potentieel tot ontwikkeling. 50 + Kleur: 5 + Aroma / bouquet: 12 + Smaak / Afdronk: 17 + Algemeen / potentieel: 7 = 91/100

    February 23, 2013 - This will be one tasting note for La Mouline, La Landonne and La Turque 2005. The Mouline was blood red with a slightly carmine rim. The Turque dark blood red and the Landonne was extremely dark with still a purple hue. The Mouline had a beautiful perfume with loads of herbs and spices and some graphite. The Turque also a lot of garrigue, esp. clove as well as ripe fruits and some (pleasant) medicine impressions. The Landonne had beside the garrigue and fruits, saddle leather, laurel and an enormous intensity. The Mouline on the palate concentrated with very juicy fruits, leather, bacon, garrigue, some sweetness, vanilla, good acidity, sticky tannin and a great length. The Turque had the same impressions and also ink and black olives. Also a great length. More firm than La Mouline but so beautiful as well with the same impressions on the palate! The Landonne really is a mouth full of wine with the most tannin and good bitterness. Maybe the least sweet, at this moment. The tannin is still the most locked and a little drying in the finish. Overall; three beautiful and superb wines with each their own merits. I will score all three the same: 96, but with one or more plusses for future expectations. The Mouline is the most elegant and juicy at the moment; 96+. The Turque holds the middle between elegance and future, but imho it has the best balance at least at this moment; 96++. La Landonne is the most reticent at the moment with the longest future; 96+++. For all three wines; wait until 2020 or even better 2025.

    July 7, 2012 - 2005 Guigals with Lawrence, Vivian and Mrs L (Fook Lam Moon, Hong Kong): Sexy and svelte while also retaining an aura of elegance and poise, the 2005 La Mouline was surprisingly approachable despite its relative youth. Nose was dominated by smoky, velvety notes of dark berries, dried flowers and saddle leather. Medium bodied, with a fine polish and smooth mouthfeel and a plush 60-second finish, this wine was a real knockout in a rather feminine sort of way (certainly compared to the La Turque opened alongside). My first experience with Guigal's famous single-vineyard Cote Roties, and I can see why these wines are often priced for perfection.

    May 15, 2012 - Guigal masterclass with Christopher Canan (Regional wines and spirits, Wellington): This is an amazing wine. Very expressive nose with plums and very slight spirity aroma. Smooth and round mouthfeel. Very long finish, I could still taste it 90 minutes later despite tasting 11 other wines at the same time. Despite spending 42 months on oak, it carries it very lightly. This stood out head and shoulders as the wine of the night, despite the high calibre of some of the other wines.
