Powerful, mineral-accented aromas of black raspberry and boysenberry, with exotic Asian spice and incense notes building in the glass. Youthfully taut and wound up, offering bright red and dark berry liqueur flavors and cracked pepper and floral pastille qualities that gain power with air. Closes bright and pure, trailing intense flavors of red fruit.

An alluring wine, with steeped currant, dark truffle, roasted apple wood and espresso aromas and flavors all mingling together, backed by a solid spine of charcoal and ganache notes. A sanguine edge runs underneath and should emerge more as this softens in the cellar. Best from 2013 through 2025. – JM

As are most of the top Guigal wines the wine is bottled unfined and unfiltered. I retasted the 2008 Cote Rotie La Mouline and it clearly is the least impressive example of this cuvee I have tasted in my thirty years of visiting Guigal. Nevertheless as the score indicates it is excellent. While more angular narrowly constructed and shorter than the great vintages it is ripe reveals no vegetal characteristics and still has a residue of the ethereal La Mouline perfume of spring flowers black raspberries and a touch of bacon fat. Drink it over the next 5-7 years. -Robert Parker
