  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 98

    Dense and grippy now, with roasted alder, bittersweet ganache and freshly roasted espresso notes leading the way, though there's a very dense core of crushed plum, black currant and blackberry fruit in reserve. A gorgeous charcoal stitching takes over on the finish. There's loads of muscle, but also terrific cut and drive through the finish.

    Inky ruby. A heady, powerfully scented bouquet evokes cassis, blueberry, licorice and mocha, with a smoky nuance building with air. Silky and seamless on the palate, offering deep dark fruit liqueur flavors sharpened by gentle acidity and a peppery note. Clings with impressive tenacity on the spice- and mineral-tinged finish, leaving a sweet floral pastille note behind. Decidedly rich for this bottling, but that's the vintage.

    Just as good, but made in a completely different style, the 2009 Cote Rotie la Mouline (which incorporates a whopping 11% of Viognier) offers an insane bouquet of roasted meats, toast, spice, caramelized meats, coffee bean and deep, concentrated and layered blackberry and cassis-styled fruit. As with the 2010, it has off-the-chart richness, a stacked mid-palate and a gorgeous polish to its tannin. Give it another 3 to 4 years and drink it over the following 2-3 decades.

    Philippe Guigal is 35 and he remembers when chaptalisation was systematic. But now they still have stocks of sugar dating back to 1996, used a bit in 2002 and 2008.Still purple. Racked in Dec 09 and slightly reduced, no SO2. Full of charm and lusciousness. Then very classic freshness and polished tannins and no obvious Viognier flavours. Sinewy and flattering and this should take on weight. 13.7% but doesn't feel it. Lovely wine, again with a lightly menthol note. Very rich and perfumed and not for the articlesa20101018.html target= title= onclick=>Tolerant. Lighter than it used to be surely?

  • 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.
