2012 Côte-Rôtie La Mouline, Etienne Guigal

TASTING NOTES

The 2012 Côte Rôtie La Mouline reminds me of the 2011 with its upfront, incredibly perfumed nose of spring flowers, cured meats, roasted herbs, olives and sweet cassis fruit. Full-bodied, beautifully textured, mouth-filling and already impossible to resist, it expands on the palate and I guarantee this beauty will put a smile on your face anytime over the coming two decades.

Etienne Guigal

Founded in 1946 by Etienne, his son (and Légion d’Honneur holder) Marcel joined in 1961 and expanded their land to what represents over a third of the Côte-Rôtie harvest. Today, third generation winemaker Philippe, Etienne’s grandson, has been involved since the 1999 after an internship at Château Cheval Blanc and studies in Dijon. Guigal’s Côte-Rôties have received more 100-point scores from Robert Parker than any other wine, and has been described as "this planet’s greatest winemaker."
