Tasting Notes

A big step up, the 2007 Cote Rotie la Mouline boasts serious richness and depth, with a still tight, focused and youthful profile that’s begging for another couple of years in the cellar. Giving up plenty of smoked earth, toast, dried flowers, graphite, chocolate and hints of bacon fat, it’s a masculine version of this cuvee that should start to open up in another 3-4 years, and drink beautifully through 2032. (96+ Points)

This has gorgeous aromas of warm tea cake, black tea and singed mesquite, followed by dense but silky structure that carries alluring plum, blackberry and licorice flavors through the very lengthy finish, where a sanguine edge echoes for added length. This has power, but it’s more about guile and perfume. Best from 2012 through 2025. 417 cases made.

The dense ruby/purple-tinged 2007 Cote Rotie La Mouline will be bottled around the time this report is released. A superb effort made in the style of the 1991 (which is drinking beautifully at age 20), the 2007 displays silky, velvety tannins, a seamless integration of acidity, alcohol and tannin, and a luscious bouquet of charcoal, lychee nut, black cherries, raspberries and forest floor. Full-bodied, opulent and irresistible, this complex, supple 2007 can be enjoyed now and over the next two decades.

Score: 95 - 97

Saturated purple. Intense, floral-accented aromas of blackberry and cherry-cola, with a strong sandalwood overlay. Lush, sweet, palate-coating dark fruit preserve flavors are complemented by anise and violet pastille qualities and gain weight with air. Tangy acidity adds cut to a long, spicy, penetrating finish. This wine was last racked in October, 2009.

Score: 93 - 95

Josh Raynolds, International Wine Cellar 01 January 2011

CS SO much denser than the 2008! This was due to be racked at the end of Oct 2009. Supple and juicy and showing real gourmandise - got the palate salivating. Dry finish but lovely roundness beforehand. Very complex and really rather burgundian in its sweetness and perfume. It truly is ‘feminine’ (stereotype).
