  • Zachys Power of Packaging - Jan 2016 (Smith & Wollensky (48th & 3rd Ave)): Opened and poured. Started just a touch more closed down and musty, but it opened up over time. Not the same 'wow' that we had a last summer, but still a very nice, well aged wine that is more herbal and leather and lower fruit, but enjoyable.

  • Opulent but not OTT nose. Very seductive. Olives, meat and a darker fruit, almost plum to it along with bloody meats and bacon fat. The wood is there but in this case it adds to the whole. Broad and deep texturally with great depth and balance, this could be called round by a wood free purist but this carries everything well. In a great spot and is very much in the vein of La Mouline. A delcious wine that comes at you but doesn't beat you over the head. In contrast to the Landonne served at its side, it is the more charming and fun sibling. In a great spot right now.

  • Wines & Steak in Toronto (Le Select Bistro, Toronto, Canada): My first La Mouline having just tried its sister the La Landonne earlier in the evening. Somewhere in the wine tasting habit, one of the goals became having one of those 'wow' moments. That point where it's just 'how in the world did the winemaker do that'. This is one of those wines. Paired with a peppercorn filet and the spice from the meat and the spice from the wine complimented each other perfectly. It's got many similar characteristics to the Landonne - beef, olive, but most of my notes are the equivalent of speechless - 'I hardly know what to say' 'I can't explain how good'. So I will just leave it as this was pretty spectacular and the WOTN for the group (saying something given the line-up).

  • Cellared since release. Perfect cork and fill. Pop and pour, enjoyed over 3 hours. Dark red core, no noticeable lightening at rim. Voluptuous nose of red and black fruits, some earth and leather. Full-bodied, soft smooth palate-coating intensity, ripe fruits, good balance, loooong finish, should drink beautifully for years, outstanding.

  • HDH Auction (Tru - Chicago, IL): You can still taste/feel the oak used here. With 20 years, however, it has seemed to have integrated nicely. Definitely a rich, 20-year old Cote Rote, but it's got really good bones. There's some meat, but this is more floral and dark fruit. Pretty nice wine.

    (Guigal Cote Rotie "La Mouline") La Mouline had a soaring nose hoisin sauce, bacon fat, violets, cinnamon and some high-octane oak. No hard edges on the palate but too sweet for me. Very well made but not my cup of tea.
