International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 116

Medium red-ruby. Classic Northern Rhone syrah aromas of crystallized black raspberry, roasted game and pepper, plus an herbal element. Penetrating and tightly wound but not hard; seemed to harmonize with aeration. Quite juicy and pristine. Finishes very long and brisk, with fine tannins and the piquant acidity of the year. This will never be a fleshy La Mouline, but several additional years of aging should bring more aromatic complexity and pliancy.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 133

The 1996 Cote Rotie La Mouline possesses the highest percentage of Viognier (17-18%) Guigal has ever included in this offering. The deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by a superb bouquet of spice box, cedar, leather, honeysuckle, and jammy black fruits. It is remarkably tender and soft for a vintage that produced high acid wines. Medium-bodied, elegant, and complex, it is one of the more forward and evolved La Moulines, and thus should be drunk over the next 10-12 years.

Wine Spectator Author: Per-Henrik Mansson

Warm, sweet-tasting and ripe, yet this full-bodied Northern Rhône Syrah has a firm, muscular structure, showing plum, black cherry, licorice, cassis, mocha, chestnut and grilled meat flavors along with some rosemary. Long finish is slightly hot. Should improve with time. 415 cases imported.
