TASTING NOTES

"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. 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." Robert M. Parker, Jr., Rhône (1997)

"Saturated ruby-red. 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." Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com

"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. 500 cases made." Wine Spectator
