External Reviews for Etienne Guigal Cote Rotie la Mouline
More tannic and concentrated than the 2000, the 2001 La Mouline reveals notes of smoky bacon fat intertwined with acacia flowers, blackberries, raspberries, and a hint of espresso. Full-bodied, deep, rich, and extraordinarily perfumed, but with a backward, firm, tannic finish, it should be at its peak between 2010andndash;2023.
A stunning nose of fig and black currant confiture draws you into a dense but velvety palate of blackberry, mocha, vanilla, mineral and tar flavors that course through a finish with fully embedded acidity and very refined tannins. Awesome length here. Hard to resist now, but better to cellar. Drink now through 2030.
Lovely, delicate, elegant Côte-Rôtie. Incredibly expressive, with the floral, cassis, black currant aromas jumping out of the glass. Medium-bodied, supple and caressing, this charmer is worth hunting down, especially for that iron and mineral terroir character. Drink now through 2010.

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.
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.
The Guigal family owns vineyards in Condrieu and in the Côte-Rôtie with illustrious plots producing wines such as ‘La Doriane’ in Condrieu, the famous growths of the Côte-Rôtie ‘La Mouline’, ‘La Turque’ and ‘La Landonne’, Côte-Rôtie Château d’Ampuis, Hermitage ‘Ex-Voto’, produced only in the great vintages and Saint-Joseph ‘Lieu-Dit Saint-Joseph’ in red and white, as well as the famous Saint-Joseph red 'Vignes de l’Hospice'. These wines have each become flagships of their appellations. In the cellars of the Guigal estate in Ampuis, the northern appellations of the Rhône Valley are produced and aged. These are the appellations of Côte-Rôtie, Condrieu, Hermitage, Saint-Joseph and Crozes-Hermitage. The great appellations of the Southern Rhône; Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Gigondas, Tavel and Côtes-du-Rhône are also aged in the Ampuis cellars. This famous Côte-Rôtie red is a feminine wine with voluptuous silky texture and intense aromas. Ruby red with red vermillion tints, the nose is of small red fruits, blackberry and floral violet aromas. The palate is intensely aromatic, powerful but full of finesse. Greatly expressive of the terroir. Robert Parker 94-97 points.
