Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 100

The 1999 Cote Rotie la Mouline is straight-up awesome on all accounts. Drinking beautifully, with explosive aromas and flavors of blackberry, smoked meats, pepper and exotic flowers, this puppy hits the palate with full-bodied richness, beautiful concentration and a seamless, sexy and oh, so fine texture that is the hallmark of this cuvee. This is another wine that will continue to evolve gracefully, yet I've been lucky enough to have it multiple times recently, and when a bottle is drinking this good, don't miss it by always waiting for another day.

($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.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 97

A sensational wine. Great opulence in this full-textured, rich and ripe red. Layered with mocha, tobacco, blackberries. Supple tannins caress the palate. Long and sweet finish. All the more complex for the mineral note and smoky, toasted aromas. 415 cases made.

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.

Wine Varietal: Syrah

While the rest of the world is calling it "Syrah," Australia and South Africa stick to "Shiraz," their name for the same grape. Previously it was thought that the name Shiraz originated from a city in Persia where the Syrah grape was believed to have originated. Recently U.S. and French researchers demystified the name debate when they discovered that the Syrah grape was indigenous to France. Intense, robust and sometimes referred to as "manly," Syrah grows principally in the Northern Rhone. The spicy, peppery grape also grows abundantly in Australia, South Africa, and California, where it takes on a softer, thicker character than its French version. Typical descriptors for Syrah include blackberry, dark chocolate, mint, eucalyptus, smoked meat, black pepper, liquorice, and cloves.
