Côte Rôtie La Mouline, Etienne Guigal 2016
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.

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.
