  • Vinous | Rating: 96

    (made with 50 percent whole clusters) Bright purple. A complex, intensely perfumed bouquet of fresh black and blue fruit, candied licorice and Asian spice scents develops a sexy floral note as the wine opens up. Vibrant and appealingly sweet on the palate, offering intense, smoke-tinged black currant, boysenberry, floral pastille and spicecake flavors energized by a refreshing snap of juicy acidity. Blends richness and vivacity with a deft hand and finishes extremely long and gently tannic, leaving a sappy blue fruit note behind.

    An array of sweet-smelling spices and a green-ish pepper edge to the nose with plenty of dark plums, crushed dark violety florals and grilled raisin toast. The palate has smooth, sweeping tannins that build in waves of pastry-like, plush and velvety texture. Long blood plum and creamy espresso finish. Drink now and beyond.

    Half bottle sample: Blackish purple. Not opulent! Introvert. Rich but not as obviously rich as some vintages but the sample was taken last week so it's a bit suppressed. From cask: (It took them ages to find it! Running all over the cellar and Olivier the oenologist was called back from lunch.) Dark purple. Clean and positive but still not the richest. Quite mild for a Mouline. But correct. Just a bit introvert and lacks the lushness of some vintages.

    The 2013 Cote Rotie La Mouline shows none of the vintage's sometimes dry tannins. It offers crisp black fruit'plums and blackberries'underscored by hints of pencil shavings, espresso and grilled meat. Suave and long, it should drink well for a couple of decades.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 96

    Very ripe, with layers of fig, boysenberry and plum compote forming the core, inlaid liberally with licorice snap, roasted apple wood and Turkish coffee notes. Shows lots of heft, but everything pulls together on the finish, exhibiting drive and definition. Best from 2020 through 2040. 65 cases imported.

  • 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.
