Viking dinner at RJs - 96 Salon, 09 Coche CC, 01 Rousseau, 06 CSS, 06 Masseto, 01 D'Yquem and etc. (Reston, Va): Despite being the last wine, absolutely perfect. I stop taking notes but a couple of the guys were still thirsty. Mostly secondary and tertiary but still incredible fruit concentration. Cool red cherries and blackberries, grilled meat, tapenade, ash and very floral. Perfect harmony and balance, incredibly silky and polished palate, succulent red fruit driven palate impression, perfect amount of acidity, fully integrated tannins and seamless long smoky finish. Incredible wine. For my palate, mature La Las are some of the greatest wines ever made.
Sweet Nose of dry fruits and rose petals, infused with roast beef and cigars! Taste of Dark and red fruits various berries currants and prunes . It has fully integrated, texture which is oily powdery with resolve tannins thick and rich on the palate yet it is elegance silky and smooth! Lovely fruits long aftertaste with a dry finish! Bravo!
This had all of the classic Mouline attributes, nicely integrated with age. Dark fruit, tar, smoke, grilled meat, black pepper, with the unmistakable light floral notes. This wine has time but is largely fully evolved and squarely in its prime drinking window. It still has all of its desired dimensions but time has mellowed and refined them.
