La Mouline 2009 - Guigal
Cote-rotie - Guigal
Cellaring: Drink now or cellar until 2047.
Tasted by Jeb Dunnuck in August 28, 2014: "Just as good, but made in a completely different style, the 2009 Cote Rotie la Mouline (which incorporates a whopping 11% Viognier) offers a crazy bouquet of roasted meats, toast, spice, caramelized meats, coffee bean, and deep, concentrated, layered blackberry and cassis-like fruit. Like the 2010, it is incredibly rich, with a full-bodied mid-palate and beautifully polished tannins. Give it another 3-4 years and drink it over the next 2-3 decades."
Grape varieties: 89% Syrah, 11% Viognier.
Vinification: In temperature-controlled stainless steel vats. Traditional pumping over. Fermentations : Alcoholic/maceration for 4 weeks.
Maturation: Unique 40 months in new barrels.
Geology of the soil: Vines on terraces in the shape of a Roman amphitheatre. The terroir is composed of gneiss giving light-coloured siliceous soils mixed with calcareous loess.
