Just as good, but made in a completely different style, the 2009 Cote Rotie la Mouline (which incorporates a whopping 11% of Viognier) offers an insane bouquet of roasted meats, toast, spice, caramelized meats, coffee bean and deep, concentrated and layered blackberry and cassis-styled fruit. As with the 2010, it has off-the-chart richness, a stacked mid-palate and a gorgeous polish to its tannin. Give it another 3 to 4 years and drink it over the following 2-3 decades.

Utterly perfect in every sense, the 2009 Côte Rôtie la Mouline is a huge, opulent, incredibly sexy wine that literally causes my heart rate to jump 10 beats or more. Smoked meats, wild flowers, peach pit, smoke and layers of huge Syrah fruit give way to a full-bodied, concentrated, heavenly red that has a dense, thick mid-palate, sweet tannin, and a blockbuster finish. If I had to pick a desert Island wine, this would be it!
