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.
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.
The 1998 Côte-Rôtie Blonde et Brune exhibits roasted, smoky characteristics, in addition to abundant quantities of bacon fat-infused cassis fruit, full body, structure, weight and concentration. It should turn out to be a big, dense, ageworthy Blonde et Brune.
The 2000 Cote Rotie La Landonne is the finest of the three La-Las in this vintage. It displays the deepest ruby color as well as a big earthy leathery nose offering scents of blackberries black currants truffles licorice and graphite. Medium to full-bodied and moderately tannic with more weight and length than its two peers it will benefit from 1-3 years of cellaring and drink well for 15 years. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
A single note of mint sings from the scent of this wine, a signal of how tightly bound it is. It tastes as if chiseled out of red rock, a ferrous quality hardening the black and red berry flavors. With air it yields more spice, some resinous herbs, tehescent of the garrigue on a hot, scrabbly hillside, but it apportions those flavors slowly, so that the wine lasts on and on. Put this away for a decade or so.
Guigal's Côte Rôtie Brune et Blonde tends to have 4-5% Viognier included in the blend. Guigal says, "1999 is the greatest vintage in my lifetime for Côte Rôtie." His 1999 Côte Rôtie Brune et Blonde has the finest potential of any Brune et Blonde I have tasted in nearly twenty years of annual visits. Its deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by a gorgeous, fat, exotic nose of bacon fat, honeysuckle, cassis, and tapenade. A touch of new saddle leather also makes an appearance in this opulent, fleshy, full-bodied 1999. It will be seductive upon release, and drink well for 15+ years.
Supple and easy to drink, this is as good an introduction to Côte-Rôtie as any. Minerally and tinged with beef blood on the nose, then showing solid berry flavors accented by herbal notes on the palate. Develops meaty noes on the finish. With 25,000 cases produced, it's the Côte-Rôtie consumers are most likely to find.
