2016 E. Guigal "La Mouline" Côte-Rôtie (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1459656 98 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Deep, glistening violet color. Highly perfumed aromas of fresh black/blue fruits, exotic spices, peony, vanilla and incense are complemented by a smoky mineral nuance. Juicy and expansive in the mouth, displaying alluringly sweet, mineral-tinged blueberry, cherry preserve and floral pastille flavors along with hints of licorice and cola. The floral and spice notes repeat emphatically on an extremely long, penetrating finish that features mounting tannins and a resonating mineral flourish. (JR) Inner quote mark (4/2020)

95-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Picked later than the 2015, the 2016 Cote Rotie La Mouline shows more dark fruit in its profile—think cassis and black olives—plus licorice and peppery spice. It's full-bodied, rich and supple, with a long finish. It may be nearly as good as the 2015, yet it'll be drinkable close to release. (JC) Inner quote mark (12/2019)

95-97 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2016 Côte Rôtie La Mouline showed beautifully and will be a classic, balanced, elegant expression of this terroir. Jammy blackberries, spring flowers, chocolate, and graphite notes all define the bouquet, and it’s full-bodied, beautifully concentrated, and never puts a foot wrong. Its purity is off the charts.

95 points Decanter

Outer quote mark A vintage that underlines the terroir', says Philippe Guigal. Vibrant and full of fruit, with underlying oak spice aromas. Juicy, soft and yielding on the palate, it's not terribly concentrated but it has a good balance of ripe acidity, soft tannin and fruit, lifted by the Viognier. Its customary 42 months in new oak barriques has hardly begun - it will be on the market in 2020. (MW) Inner quote mark (10/2017)
