Best Of The Best 2006: Lady In Red

Anthony Dias Blue

Of the three famed Côte-Rôtie vineyards that Etienne Guigal owns in the Rhône Valley, only La Mouline is located on the so-called Côte Blonde, a portion of the appellation where the topography resembles a terraced am­phi­theater and the vines average 75 years in age. Here, Viognier is planted alongside the Syrah grapes, giving the Guigal 2001 Côte-Rôtie La Mouline and other Côte Blonde wines a quality that is more voluptuous, elegant, and feminine than those from the neighboring Côte Brune, where only Syrah is grown. La Mouline typically contains about 11 percent Viognier, and spends 42 months in new oak. The 2001 exhibits rich textural complexity, with generous red berry fruit and overtones of smoke and spice.
