La La's - Comparatively Speaking

La Mouline: soft and plump, earliest to mature and earliest to fade
La Landonne: biggest, darkest, and most tannic of the three, very long lived but with many dark periods
La Turque: between the two - more aromatic than Landonne, but more muscular in structure than Mouline.
