The spectacular, dense ruby/purple-colored 1997 Cote Rotie La Mouline boasts a complex nose of violets, peaches, and cassis. Soft, voluptuous, medium to full-bodied, and incredibly seductive, it is reminiscent of the 1991 and 1987.
In 2006 Marcel Guigal was awarded the Decanter Man of the Year award for his contributions and dedication to the Rhône Valley. His three iconic ‘La La’s’ (La Turque, La Mouline and La Landonne) are, in qualitative terms, the very best vineyards in the Northern Rhône’s Côte-Rôtie appellation.
The steep slopes and sweltering plateaus of the Rhône Valley almost seem as though they would create conditions so harsh that it would be impossible to grow vines. However, it is believed that vines were first introduced to the region around 600 BC and they have flourished there ever since. The wines produced from these unforgiving vineyards are often amongst the best in France, with some, even comparable to the greatest wines of Bordeaux. The styles may differ throughout the region, but the Rhône's concentrated, spicy, fruit-driven wines are usually of high quality and provide great value.
