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... Robert Parker

Tired wine that probably had loads more potential just a few years ago. Starting to become muted

Tasting group, blind. 3/20/16. A lot of VA, Very tart, astringent. Ouch. Much better with food.

Had this next to a great new bottle of wine, up and coming producer, No Limit Syrah from Edna Valley. No Limit beat this out on the nose, as this La Mouline was a bit shy. Still much more appreciation has been acquired through the years on these La La's, and not because or RP or the price. These are worth the money, you just need to know what you're in for. That being said, great presence in the mouth, even after these years. Fantastic consistent color profile, and the amazing amount of umami styled eart component to go 'round. I wish I had more of this. Would have preferred the bottle for full analysis, but a fun few ounce tastes nonetheless.
