Nez cassis puis poivre épice et enfin cuir, bouche pleine charnu puissante qui éclate sur le fruit rouge, finale fraiche sur le cassis le poivre une pointe chocolat et cuir

Among so many exceptional La Mouline's, this is one of the most profound. At the same time, it is atypically backward, and has been slow to evolve. Still dark purple-colored, with only a hint of the flamboyant Mouline aromatics, this thick, super concentrated, full-bodied, tannic La Mouline is loaded with fruit, massive, and full-bodied, but still in need of time to fully shed its cloak of tannin. It is likely to be the longest-lived La Mouline since the 1978 and 1969.

The 1988 is Guigals best red Hermitage since the 1983. More concentrated than either the 1989 or 1990, it exhibits an opaque, dark ruby/purple color, and a huge, relatively undeveloped but promising ... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Syrah wine from Rhone in France. 1988 Guigal Hermitage 750ml
