Checking in on the 2007 La La's. Very dark, blackish crimson. This is always the most dark/dense of the three also in this vintage. Expressive nose of smoke, tar, licorice, black fruit, smoked meat, really on the opposite aromatic spectrum of the Cote Blonde (Mouline), no doubt that we are in the Cote Brune here. The aroma is very distinctive here with smoked meat in the center, not for the faint-hearted. Full bodied palate with lots of structure, tannis very present but not drying. A very masculine wine, wait until 2020 to drink this and then don't forget: Throw another stake on the Barbie mate...
TN: Rhone dinner (The Grill Room at Capella Hotel Georgetown): It is interesting as this seems more mature than the 05 Mouline. Crunch blue and black fruit driven nose, perfectly ripe crushed blackberries and blueberries, strong tapenade note, smoked meat, white pepper and wild flowers. Excellent concentration but not as concentrated as the 05 and also a bit cooler overall impression, polished silky palate, a bit of olive, flowers and blackberry driven palate impression, bright acidity and lovely long finish. This seems almost ready to go but no need to hurry. Lovely showing.
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.
