  • This just keeps getting better and better. I expect that trend to continue. While still youthful, the potent bouquet, with its flowers, licorice, tobacco leaf, smoke, cherry liqueur, espresso and very dark chocolate, nose is a complete turn on. On the palate, the wine is all about its freshness, concentration, vibrancy and layers of silky, sweet, boysenberries, black cherries and plummy notes. Drink this now, if you like it young, or wait a decade. Either way, this is a stunner!

  • At Wine & View Bar at Helsinki Airport. The wine was medium to dark garnet in colour and offered a mind-blowing nose; complex, masculine, sweet and perfumed, with dark fruit, cherry, leather, tobacco, earth, gherkin, black pepper and exotic spices. On the palate this medium- to full-bodied Côte-Rotie started sweet, than became very fresh and finally finished dry, with dark fruit, dark cherry, some chocolate, tobacco, earth and balsamic notes, paired with fresh, medium-plus acidity, smooth, ripe, well-integrated tannin and incredible length. The finish went on for ages. Complex, intense, concentrated; this is … wow!

  • Had this New Years Eve and just got around to posting it. Nose of bacon fat, cherry, anise, and more bacon. Nice darkened color. A bit of wildness mixed in with intense dark fruit and exotic spice. Coats the mouth and lasts forever. Thanks to my friend Marty who encouraged me to put away a few LaLas. This has many more years of life.

  • A beautiful nose of smoky baconfat, black fruits and animal fur. Really closed at first on the palate but it started to blossom some late. Lean but has lots of depth with crisp acids and hints of animalistic flavors to go along with black fruits and dark spices. My sense is this will develop into a wilder, funky style of La Mouline which is definitely not a bad thing. Needs hibernation in the cellar for another decade at least. 93+

  • My goodness, a La La that I dig. Here we have a classic Cote Rotie nose of flowers and bacon, lots of bacon. No trace of oak on the palate (thank you), dark-toned fruit, bacon, broth in a feminine style. There is an understated power here that I like. Usually, I find the La La's too chocolate milky, this one is not, this is genuine. With Jon in London.
