Guigal Côte-Rôtie La Mouline 2005
Bottle Size: 75cl
Region: France: Northern Rhône
Grape Variety: Syrah & Viognier
Another ridiculous effort, the 2005 Cote Rotie la Mouline doesn’t pull any punches and is perfectly balanced, deeply concentrated and shockingly rich, with a seamless, elegant and silky character that’s to die for. Giving up notions of smoked beef, iron, spring flowers and thrilling black raspberry and blackberry fruit, this classic La Mouline has nothing out of place, beautiful purity and precision, and incredible length. More in the style of the 2010, it can be consumed anytime over the coming 2-3 decades. Tasted August 2014. 100 points. Jeb Dunnuck. Robert Parker.
