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.

1995 Guigal La Mouline

1995 Guigal La Mouline - drank over dinner at Pierre. This is hands down my favorite wine in the world, and I bought a few bottles of this vintage in Tokyo 10 years ago. I always knew it was a little early to drink this wine, but I wanted to see how far along it has come in its evolution. The nose had lots of violet, pine needle, forest, caramel, toffee, smoked meats, very sweet fruit like ripe melon, mint and eucalyptus notes. Reasonable concentration, with a medium length finish that is slightly acidic. The alcohol was still very apparent. I wasn't disappointed at all.

Full post on dinner is here.
