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.

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. Anticipated maturity: 1999-2015. Last tasted 7/96.</P>

Knockout nose combines black raspberry smoked meat truffle and woodsmoke. Lush and seamless with captivating black raspberry and gunflint flavors framed by harmonious acids and supported by a powerful minerally backbone. The firm tannins are buried in fruit on the extremely long palate-staining peppery finish. An incredible wine just now embarking on its plane of peak drinkability. 98 points

Ripe and concentrated without being overly tannic seductive offering raspberry cherry and vanilla flavors and a long elegant finish. Drinkable now but better in 1998.--Guigal Côte-Rôtie vertical. (TM)
