Eye: Ruby red with red vermillion tints. Nose: Small red fruits, blackberry and floral violet aromas.Intensely aromatic, powerful but full of finesse. Palate: Supple with balance between the finesse of the aromas and an explosive richness due to the concentration of the wine. Greatly expressive of the terroir. Overall: A feminine wine with voluptuous silky texture and intense aromas.

Wine AdvocateAs to three single parcel releases, I reviewed the 2010 Cote Rotie La Mouline earlier this year, but was more than happy to taste it again (lucky me) for this report. Incorporating a full 11% of Viognier and coming from the steep, terraced vines in the Cote Blonde lieu-dit, it sports a heavenly bouquet of spring flowers, incense, violets, cured meats and sweet cassis. Full-bodied, voluptuous and as seamless as they come, Syrah just doesn't get any more alluring, sexy or impressive. Give it 5-6 years and drink bottles over the following 2 decades or more.

Wine SpectatorThis smolders from the start, with Turkish coffee and warm ganache notes out front, backed by steeped currant, warmed fig and Black Forest cake flavors. The well-structured finish is layered with charcoal and mesquite notes, revealing bay leaf and chestnut details in the background. Offers terrific density, cut and range. Drapes like velvet despite the heft and structure. Best from 2017 through 2040. 400 cases made.
