Winemaker Notes

The 2006 vintage produced wines with more forward fruit than 2005, but with good tannic structure and at least 20 years of aging potential in a good cellar.

Blend: 89% Syrah; 11% Viognier; partial destemming.

Critical Acclaim

ST 96
International Wine Cellar

Vivid red. Black raspberry, blood orange and Asian spices on the expressive, hypnotically perfumed nose. Juicy, focused and floral, offering sweet red and dark berry flavors, a strong note of floral pastilles and a firm mineral underpinning. Finishes with superb focus and length, showing remarkable freshness and lingering minerality.

WS 95
Wine Spectator

Very perfumy and alluring, with lots of espresso, sandalwood and black tea notes all mingling together, while velvety crushed plum, fig and blackberry fruit glides in behind them. Hints of mesquite and iron play out on the well-integrated finish. Accessible, but will cellar easily too. Best from 2011 through 2032.

The Wine Advocate

The deep ruby/purple-tinged 2006 Cote Rotie La Mouline exhibits gorgeous notes of plum pudding, espresso roast, black cherry jam, and caramelized, exotic fruits. Full-bodied, fleshy, velvety-textured, and silky with superb richness as well as a sumptuous mouthfeel, this is a tour de force of hedonism and complexity. It should provide immense pleasure over the next 20+ years.
