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.

2003 La Turque

Dinner at Mono.

Bulles de Comptoir #9 Tradition, dégorgée en janvier 2021 - good depth on the palate. More acidity but also some bitterness.

2003 Guigal La Turque - served 30 minutes after decanting. First taste was so-so, maybe stayed in glass a little too long. Nose was still kinda nice, with forest, a little floral and soapy notes. About 50 minutes after decanting, the second pour was fresher, more lively on the palate, but still a little softer than expected. One hour and 15 minutes after, this showed more sweet and ripe fruits, gets better at 1½ hours, and more than 2 hours after this showed some vanilla oak.  Honestly, this was kinda disappointing.  I was expecting much more from one of my favorite wines from a stellar vintage.

Full post on dinner is here.
