Serverades blint! Ingen som helst tvekan att det var en av Guigals La La La , men jag trodde snarare La Turque.
Kraftfull doft med rökig chark, läder, rött kött, anis och massor av nymalen vitpeppar. I smaken en kraftfull frukt och samma rökta chark och nymalda vitpeppar. Detta är verkligen kraftfulla viner som behöver många år i källaren för att verkligen visa upp hela sitt spektra.
This is one comparative tasting note for La Mouline, La Landonne and La Turque 2007. (Of course) all three wines are still very youthful. All three have beautiful herbs and spices (garrigue) in the bouquet. La Mouline showed some tea as well (but not of the old age kind), beautiful fruits and oaky flavors. The bouquet of La Landonne showed salty licorice, cherry liquor and some green bell peppers as well. In La Turque the fruits were most ripe in the bouquet and combined with the garrigue and the beautiful oak, the most complex and open of the three at this moment. On the palate La Mouline showed its youthfulness again with beautiful spiciness, oak, a firm amount of acidity and good tannin. For La Landonne it is the same, but here the tannin is the most sticky of the three. La Turque has most sweetness and beside that very juicy acidity, good tannin and an enormous length. Overall La Mouline is the most elegant of the three. La Landonne still the most locked, but with a great length and future. La Turque is the most open for business and because of the sweetness the most easy to like at this moment. It is probably wise not to touch a bottle before 2025 and start with La Turque, then La Mouline and save La Landonne for last. My scores of the day were: La Turque 97, La Mouline 96+ and La Landonne 95++. It could well be that a decade (or two) from now La Landonne shows to be best.
