    (Guigal Cote-Rotie La Mouline) The last wine on this starry night was a 1988 Guigal Cote-Rotie La Mouline. Even though this was the sixth wine sampled, somehow it was number eight in my notes. That’s what we call a good night J. Sexy aromas of violet, bacon and menthol were immediately apparent. The Historian added, ‘pine,’ and Gil, ‘California peppercorn.’ This was a wow wine – what is it about La Mouline that always stands out amongst its Bordeaux and Burgundy brethren? Oh, that’s right, it’s Syrah. Seriously though, there are few wines outside the ‘Big Two’ that can shine this brightly in their presence. And in case you were wondering, La Mouline is the best of the three La La’s, by far. This was a ‘wow’ wine, with deep, purple fruit bordering on saturated. It was heavy and rich with a spicy finish and impeccable balance. Like a great heavyweight champion, it had the float and the sting (97).

    (Guigal Cote Rotie La Mouline) Sweet Lou’s 1988 La Mouline helped end the evening with a bang, continuing his perfect provenance streak with me at 121 bottles. Joe Dimaggio couldn’t have done it better himself. It was a great bottle, and it stood out from the crowd, for sure.

    (Guigal 'La Mouline') was the class of the flight (what else is new?). It had a beefy, roasted, earthy and gamy nose full of t 'n a. Its palate was great; rich, long and hearty with lots of game, garden and earth flavors. Long and tasty with lots of vigor on its finish, the La Mouline was still silky smooth
