2015 E. Guigal "La Mouline" Côte-Rôtie

SKU #1431653 98-100 points Jeb Dunnuck

 On another level, and unquestionably the best of the three vintages, the 2015 Côte Rôtie La Mouline sports an inky purple color as well as an off-the-charts bouquet of black currants, smoked herbs, spring flowers, gamey meats, and acacia flowers. Massively concentrated, opulent, and as sexy as wine gets, it reminds me of the 1978 La Mouline and has perfection written all over it. If you can afford it, this is a magical, legendary wine in the making that will keep for 4-5 decades.  (12/2018)

99 points James Suckling

 A very complex and complete nose with everything so integrated and beautifully judged. There are ripe blackberries, blood plums, fragrant spices, dark stones and roasted coffee, to name just some of what is already on offer here. The palate has such richness and such build and layering with ripe dark plums and blackberries, clothed in robes of spice-laden, velvety tannins in a majestic mode. Pure class and a great vintage for sure. One of the best ever. Best from 2025.  (10/2019)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2015 Cote Rotie La Mouline contains the most Viognier of any of Guigal's La Las: 11%. That tends to make it more open and approachable when young, but the 2015 seemed closed at the time of my visit. Cedar and vanilla frame mixed berries in a full-bodied, plush wine that somehow never seems heavy. It shows great elegance and length, and I'm confident the complexity it showed at earlier tastings will reemerge with a few years in the bottle. (JC)  (12/2019)

98 points Wine Spectator

 This is packed with red and black currant preserves, raspberry pâte de fruit and plum reduction at the core. A long way from opening, as the fruit is encased in layers of singed alder, warm earth and smoldering tobacco. A singed iron spine girds the finish. Best from 2025 through 2045  (9/2019)

Jancis Robinson

 Glossy and polished, but aromatically quite restrained at first. There's lovely fruit richness on the palate, and it has the classic hallmarks of bramble and blackcurrant, and the oak seems to have been completely absorbed into the fruit, so there's not much spicy lift. Finely ground tannins, balanced acidity, moderate length – drinkable now, but the fireworks haven't started yet. 17.5+/20 points. (RH)  (6/2019)
