The 2004 Cote Rotie La Mouline displays soft notes of caramel, cola, bacon fat, litchi nuts, and honeysuckle along with the cassis and sweet cherry fruit. It is actually one of the most seductive and luscious of La Moulines to drink, and should probably be consumed in its first 10-12 years of life.
A lilting, perfumy style, with incense, warm raspberry ganache and black tea aromas leading the way for mixed berry sorbet, mesquite and mocha notes. Supersilky on the long, alluring finish. A beauty, with impressive purity for the vintage. Drink now through 2023. 400 cases made.
The 2004 Cote Rotie La Mouline rivals its two siblings as the wine of the vintage in this appellation. Beautifully sweet aromas of bacon fat, lychee nuts, caramelized black cherries, and raspberries are found in its complex aromatics. Black olive and black cherry flavors also emerge in the mouth. This lush, round, generously-endowed, sensual 2004 is best consumed over the next 10-12 years.
($350) Vivid red color. Alluring aromas of black raspberry, anise, potpourri and minerals. Pliant, seductively sweet red and dark berry flavors stain the palate, braced by dusty minerals. The raspberry note comes on strong on the finish, which is sharply focused and remarkably pure. A wine of great finesse.
