1991 E. Guigal Cote Rotie La Mouline - 100 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 RP100 - The 1991 La Mouline appears to be another perfect wine in the making with a staggering bouquet of violets bacon fat sweet cassis fruit and toasty oak. The wine exhibits superb density. It is tasting even richer and more concentrated than it did during its first several years of life. With 8% Viognier in the blend and made from extremely low yields only 400 cases produced it is a phenomenal wine. I find it more seductive than the nearly perfect 1990. Readers should be getting in their reservations now for Guigal's 1991 single vineyard Cote Roties. In 1991 Cote Rotie enjoyed the most success of any appellation of France. The harvest was completed before the damaging rains arrived. RP
