Deep red-ruby. Roasted raspberry and pepper on the nose; fruitier that the Hermitage. Elegantly styled and fruity, with sweet flavors of red currant, raspberry, bacon fat, leather and woodsmoke. Showing nicely today, but this also has the backbone to develop over the next decade or so. Finishes long and juicy, with tannins perfectly supported by the wine's mid-palate material.

Marcel Guigal once again proves that he is the Rhône Valley's premier winemaker, with this outstanding effort in a difficult vintage. Our top-rated Rhône red of 1993, it's balanced, ripe, firm and long, with the plum, game and licorice flavors characteristic of this elegant appelation.

Bright ruby-red. Superriipe, expressive aromas of raspberry, coffee, roasted herbs and pepper; shows a slightly porty surmanutité. Rich, round and lush; a wonderfully ripe and full-blown yet fresh wine with substantial, solid tannins and superb persistence. This has a lot of all the key elements, including acidity. A superb vintage for this wine - and there are more than 27,000 cases of this stuff!

Made since the 1966 vintage, La Mouline is the oldest of Guigal's three Côte-Rôtie single-vineyard cru. The 1999, produced from 2.5 acres, shows great opulence and rich texture and a layer of mocha, tobacco and blackberries. Long and sweet finish, with caressing tannins and mineral, smoky and toasted aromas. Best from 2006 to 2020.

Every vintage has its share of bacon fat, toast, cassis, acacia flower, black raspberry, creme de cassis, and tapenade notes. A voluptuous texture, sweet tannin, and a satiny smooth demeanor are hallmarks of La Mouline, whether it's a difficult (1974) or great vintage (1999). As it ages, aromas of violets and peaches also emerge. All of the "La La" offerings (as Guigal's fans call them) are aged 42 months in 100% new Francois Freres barrels, experience minimal racking as well as sulphur, and are bottled with neither fining nor filtration. While critics call them branded wines, they always emerge from the same vineyard parcels. In response to the criticism that they are oaky, virtually no new wood can be detected in the wines after 6-8 years of cellaring.

Full-bodied and balanced, focusing on mineral, plum, blackberry, game and leather. The complexity grows as all these flavors cascade to a long, elegant finish. Drink now through 2010.

The awesome 1998 Côte-Rôtie La Mouline is a seamless, full-bodied classic with many characteristics of the 1997 La Landonne, but more structure, tannin, and muscle. It will need two years of cellaring, and will last for twenty years. Stylistically, it is reminiscent of the 1988. These tasting notes will not surprise any longtime readers. I have never made a secret of the fact that if I had only one wine left to drink, I would want it to be one of the great vintages of Guigal's Côte-Rôtie La Mouline.
