Aug. 22, 2003: E. GUIGAL Côte-Rôtie La Mouline 1999 (97 points, $275)

Another of Guigal's "La La" trio, the '99 La Mouline is sensational. Great opulence in this full-textured, rich and ripe red. Layered with mocha, tobacco, blackberries. Supple tannins caress the palate. Long and sweet finish. All the more complex for the —Per-Henrik Mansson
