My favourite this evening, thanks to impeccable balance and its floral lift on the nose. Caressing tannins, still young of course, but starting to showcase its true complexity.

And then we get to the La La’s. We had all 3 from Guigal, all the same 2011 vintage. La Turque tends to be my preference. It’s usually still brooding on the palette but with a more fragrant, floral aspect on the nose. Very much the case here even with this baby of a wine.

Bacon fat and pepper in an elegant lean style. Fruit is balanced well by earth and structure. 7% viognier co-planted and co-fermented. A terrific "La"!

Still incredibly young but extremely soft given the age.

This baby is spicy with tart black fruits and firm gripping tannins.

Muscle, structure and tannin play equal parts. An infant. Lovely.
