E.Guigal Cote-Rotie "La Mouline" 2014
Black raspberries, dried licorice, smoked meats, spices and crushed flowers, as well as a kiss of vanilla all emerge from this full-bodied, pure, polished Cote Rotie. It has beautiful ripeness and polish to its tannin, as well as an overriding sense of elegance. -WA
