International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 116

Saturated ruby-red. Sappy raspberry, redcurrant, plum and spices on the nose, lifted by an exotic floral/apricotty viognier note and complicated by woodsmoke, pepper and mint. Penetrating and very tightly wound, with brisk acidity giving this extremely young wine almost painful intensity. A saline, sappy quality and a hint of green pepper underscore the extreme youth of this highly promising wine. This certainly calls for at least a decade of additional aging.

11% Viognier. 42 months in 100% new barriques. 400 c/s. La Mouline first bottled 1996. Deep garnet but brighter than La Turque. Darker fruit on the nose, plenty of oak, but also riper - dark ripe cherry with perfume emerging. More peppery and masculine. Intense and so concentrated. Then so sweet and fresh and deep on the palate. Gorgeously generous and intense without any heaviness. Very very fine grained and a long sweet finish. More open than La Turque and finishes very fresh. (JH)

The awesome 1998 Cote Rotie La Mouline is a seamless, full-bodied classic with many characteristics of the 1997 La Landonne , but more structure, tannin, and muscle. It will need two years of cellaring, and will last for twenty years. Stylistically, it is reminiscent of the 1988.

These tasting notes will not surprise any longtime readers. I have never made a secret of the fact that if I had only one wine left to drink, I would want it to be one of the great vintages of Guigal's Cote Rotie La Mouline. This wine's aromatic fireworks, sumptuous texture, and seamless personality represent perfection. While the percentage of Viognier blended with Syrah can vary from 8-12% (even higher in a vintage such as 1996), this remains one of the world's most intensely perfumed and compelling wines.

Wine Spectator Author: Per-Henrik Mansson

Lovely, delicate, elegant Cote-Rotie. Incredibly expressive, with the floral, cassis, black currant aromas jumping out of the glass. Medium-bodied, supple and caressing, this charmer is worth hunting down, especially for that iron and mineral terroir character. 415 cases made.
