1990 E. Guigal Cote Rotie La Mouline - 99 pts!

E. Guigal is one of the most notable wine producers in the Rhône Valley. It was founded in 1946 by Etienne Guigal in Ampuis, a village near the famous roasted slopes of the Côte Rôtie,with a long history of winegrowing, and today has plots throughout the Rhône. Guigal makes wines from classic Mediterranean varieties like Grenache, Mourvèdre, Viognier and Roussanne, although the focus has always been on Syrah and Côte Rôtie.

The company's sizeable holdings run the length of the valley, encompassing Saint-Joseph, Hermitage, Gigondas, Condrieu and Chateauneuf-du-Pape, making wines in each, as well as a couple of Côte du Rhône wines. However, Guigal's most notable wines – La Landonne, La Turque and La Mouline – are all from Côte Rôtie, and are some of the most sought-after wines in the region. In fact, all three have had 100-point Robert Parker scores for multiple vintages.

Rating RP99 - 1990 E. Guigal Cote Rotie La Mouline - 99 pts! The super-concentrated 1990 La Mouline is closer in style to the other-worldly 1988 than I would have thought. Extremely rich with a huge bacon fat toasty cassis and floral-scented nose as well as phenomenally rich flavors it is a wine known for its voluptuousness and extraordinary intensity. This amazing wine should drink well for 20+ years.The 1990 single vineyard Cote Roties which were released this spring are the Cote Roties of the vintage. 1990 was not an easy year in this appellation because of the severe drought and heat wave that stressed the vineyards. As I have said previously 1991 and 1989 are consistently better years for most of the Cote Rotie producers. However Guigal has turned in exceptional efforts with its three single vineyard wines. RP
