Etienne Guigal La Turque 1987
A blast of roasted herb, licorice, and black fruit scents jump from the glass of this full-bodied, superconcentrated 1987. Very pure, with some pain grille notes from new oak still present, this thick, juicy wine is soft, but its color and bouquet are more typical of a 3- or 4-year-old wine than one that is approaching 10 years of age. The finish is long and rich, with more tannin than in La Mouline. Anticipated maturity: now-2009. Last tasted 8/96.
