    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 1990 vintage of this wine was ranked #2 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 1994

    La Mouline is a steeply terraced amphitheater on the Cote Blonde, a shape that shelters the 1 hectare site from the wind and acts as a heat trap. Acquired in 1966, this was Guigal's first single-vineyard Cote Rotie. The site is planted to 89% Syrah and 11% Viognier. This extra dose of Viognier gives La Mouline its more nuanced character, often called the most feminine of Guigal's Cote Roties.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This has gorgeous aromas of warm tea cake, black tea and singed mesquite, followed by dense but silky structure that carries alluring plum, blackberry and licorice flavors through the very lengthy finish, where a sanguine edge echoes for added length. This has power, but it's more about guile and perfume. Best from 2012 through 2025.

    The stunning 2007 Cote Rotie La Mouline boasts notes of sweet lychee nuts, licorice, black raspberries, kirsch and a floral/honeysuckle character that one associates with white wines. Full-bodied and voluptuously textured with silky tannin, this beauty is reminiscent of the 1997 and 1991 La Mouline. Enjoy it over the next 20 years.

    The Wine Advocate

    Inky purple. Highly pungent aromas of cherry, blackcurrant, violet and cracked pepper. Sappy and sweet on entry, then firmed by dusty tannins, which frame the vivid dark fruit and violet pastille flavors. A spicy quality dominates the long, focused, energetic finish. 93-96 Points
