Nez très séduisant, enivrant, d'épices fines, de viande fumée, poivre et cerises noires. Le nez envoûtant d'un grand vin, mais la bouche est évidemment plus légère, voluptueuse, très bien conservée voire jeune. Elle souffre simplement d'un manque de concentration. 91 pts
HDH auction tasting at Tru; 5/15/2015-5/16/2015 (Chicago, IL): Yes, you can tell that this is a much lighter vintage. Red florals, good lift, and very light-bodied. The palate is similarly light-bodied, and I'd probably drink this sooner than later. A good amount of stems and meat. Lovely stuff; I think Guigal always performs the best in off vintages.
BYOB HT14#3: Clearly more mature than the '97 La Turque by its side. And I won't keep my last bottle for too long. Nose is dominated by lovely roasted oak, coffee, leather, tobacco, ceder, pepper, meat and some green notes.
High acidity, mature fruit and velvety smooth texture. High intensity, and a long, but quite dry finish. Looking forward to try again, on its own. Had a hard time impressing with its younger brother excelling in such convincing manners. #BYOB
