This is still a work in progress as I upload tasting notes and wine labels from as far as 1999... Check back once in a while to get the updates.

1983 Guigal La Mouline

Drinking at home.

1983 Guigal La Mouline - double-decanted and started drinking after 1 hour.  Wow!  What an incredible wine!  Nose is very sweet.  Just hits you.  Lots of cassis, leather.  The smoke comes and goes with  breathing time, but the sweet fruit core stays.  A very long, spicy finish, lasting up to a minute!  Very good stuff.  The perfect score from Parker is well-deserved.  Color is dark, indicating that this wine still has a long life ahead.  Nice violet notes.  Finished drinking 4 hours after opening.
