2011 Etienne Guigal Cote Rotie La Mouline
Red fruits, blackberry and floral aromas of vio- let. The wine is silky, velvety and voluptuous, with intense aromatics. An oustanding wine to enjoy with exceptional meals, especially game birds.
The Wine Advocate - "Scheduled to be bottled early in 2015, the 2011 Cote Rotie La Mouline is more perfumed, exuberant and approachable than the 2010. It exhibits a crazy bouquet of spice-box, vanilla bean, spring flowers and sweet kirsch, cassis and black raspberry. Full-bodied, seamless and elegant, with sweet tannin, it will be hard to resist in its youth and have 2+ decades of prime drinking.
Wine Spectator - "Very dense, dark and brooding in feel, with a thick coating of Turkish coffee and bittersweet ganache over the copious blackberry and fig flavors. The long finish is studded with charcoal and smoldering tobacco hints. Patience is required. Best from 2018 through 2030."
