The 2012 Cote Rotie La Mouline is hitting its stride with predictable elegance. Jeb Dunnuck calls it “impossible to resist” and gives it a solid 97-points. Inhale spring flowers and roasted herbs before you sink into this full-bodied, expansive indulgence. After near a decade of idleness, maturing in our cellars, this fruit is ripe for the picking. Get it while the getting’s good, before this Rhone girl is gone.

Wine Advocate

The 2012 Côte Rôtie La Mouline reminds me of the 2011 with its upfront, incredibly perfumed nose of spring flowers, cured meats, roasted herbs, olives and sweet cassis fruit. Full-bodied, beautifully textured, mouth-filling and already impossible to resist, it expands on the palate and I guarantee this beauty will put a smile on your face anytime over the coming two decades.
