($250) Bright deep ruby. Cassis, roasted herbs, licorice and cooked tomato on the nose. Lush and thick, but with strong minerality contributing to the impression of grip. Superconcentrated fruit here. Suave, expanding finish goes on and on. Offers great long-term aging potential.

Dark ruby. First bottle : very fragrant but on the edge of brett. Bit dry on the finish and a bit monlithic – lacks its usual charm. Is this a bottle problem ? Second bottle : fresh and frank and charming. Real lift and life and transparency. Now this is more like the gorgeous Mouline one knows….

Wow. This wine is a blockbuster. After 4 hours of air, it presents a kaleidoscope of flavors on the palate with layers of fruit. The finish goes on and on. This is still a baby but very accessible now.

About This Producer


Marcel Guigal - the so-called "pivot" of the Cote-Rotie appellation - is both an owner and negociant, and vinifies over 40% of all Cote-Rotie. His father, Etienne, started out quite modestly in 1946, and over the next decades the company has grown to encompass all that is best in the Rhone Valley. Not only known for the massive hits in Hermitage and Cote-Rotie, the Guigal name is synonymous with quality all along the scale, from the humble Cotes-du-Rhone to the Big Three - La Landonne, La Mouline and La Turque.
