    November 9, 2019 - Best bottle (Restaurant Holz und Feuer, Kirchheim, Germany): Glass: Gabriel Standard
    Popped and poured, not decanted. My bottle and I sucked. I did not dare to decant it, but it would have certainly benefitted. Clear, deep purple color. Clean, youthful developing nose. Classic Syrah fruit, spices, some green notes. Not as deep and complex as a fully mature vintage, but nice.
    On the palate with a racy, well integrated acidity. Very dense and young. Nice Syrah fruit, some green and harsh notes, black pepper. Dense. Good balance. Given the complicated vintage a very good wine, but not worth the price tag though. 92+

    September 27, 2019 - (TFWE) one glass. Noticeable vanilla oak nose with dark fruit, caramel and coffee bean. Silky tannins. Elegant yet quite powerful. Preferred this wine over the 05 Rene Rostaing La Landonne served alongside. 93+

    May 25, 2019 - at the home of two dogs, with friends old and new: dark ruby color. Nose savory dark fruit with bacon aroma. Palate sweet fruit, chocolatey. a bit too rich/modern however perhaps it needed more time (either sideways or in a decanter)? 89 pts.

    August 23, 2018 - On Thursday, we drank a few wines from the North Rhone blindly. Well made wines, but with very different styles. The WOTN was the E. Guigal Cotie Rotie La Mouline 2002. Classic and consistent. Amazing. The second wine was the Thierry Alemand Cornas Chaillot 2011. Great wine. For some it was the WOTN. The third wine was the Clusel Roch Cote Rotie 2006. Modern style. Good. The 4th wine was a huge disappointment. Bernard Levet's Cotie Rotie La Chavaroche 2012 looked like a Chilean wine with excess of guava.

    December 2, 2017 - 2002 La La Horizontal Tasting. It is truly impressive what Guigal was able to achieve with this difficult vintage in Cote-Rotie. This ranked #2 of the three La Las. While it was the most feminine of the three, it was also the most balanced and harmonious. A very pretty wine that went down like liquid silk. If this wine tastes this good from 2002 vintage, I can only imagine what it tastes like from a good vintage. Pop & Poured with no decant. However, consumed these over a 3 hour period. A great expression of Northern Rhone Syrah & Viognier.
