    September 3, 2018 - Nice nose. Smoky and meaty. Mint appears with time. Definitely some oak notes, still after all this time.
    High acidity, a little thin at first. Blue fruits.
    Even though palate becomes more harmonious and fuller with time, this shows the limit of the vintage and what this wine can achieve.

    October 31, 2017 - Ich hatte gehofft, diese Flasche könne mit dem Insignia zumindest grob mithalten, aber Pustekuchen. Kein Kork, aber ohne Kraft und Power. Keine typische Guigal Würze. 91

    June 26, 2017 - Sour cherries with someiron notes. Tannins clean and tight. Very fresh. Needs 20 years to get some secondary funk.

    March 21, 2017 - Drank all three La Las blindly from the same vintage side by side. Thanks Achim.

    Turque
    This one shows pungent black berries, mighty and still a baby even from this not perfect vintage, the acidity is enormously powerful, sometimes you feel the fruit behind this structure, no hurry to finish your bottles, 94-95

    Landonne
    More elegant and finer than the La Turque. More structured, longer finish, the nose is the same, beside the fruit, oriental spicieness, 95

    Mouline
    The spiciest of all 3 Lalas, very etherical with lovely eucalyptus, sweet cherry, very balanced, for me the most impressive, 96

    November 20, 2016 - Food: Chinese
    Condition: perfect
    Duration: 7 hours
    Nose: earth, tar
    Notes: the unfortunate situation of this wine is good but will never open up. Second time trying this wine in 2 years, no luck. Revisit in 8-13 years. I'm sure I can give a much higher rating when the wine is more suitable for drinking but right now this will be tough.
