2007: 96 Points - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate: "The stunning 2007 Cote Rotie La Mouline boasts notes of sweet lychee nuts, licorice, black raspberries, kirsch and a floral/honeysuckle character that one associates with white wines. Full-bodied and voluptuously textured with silky tannin, this beauty is reminiscent of the 1997 and 1991 La Mouline. Enjoy it over the next 20 years. "

2007: 95-98 Points - Steve Tanzer, International Wine Cellars: " Saturated ruby. Superripe aromas of liqueur-like black raspberry, smoked meat and roasted nuts. A wine of incredible confectionery sweetness, density and depth, and atypically large-scaled (14. 5% alcohol) and glyceral for La Mouline. To suggest it lacks elegance may be quibbling. There's powerful underlying structure here and a deep chocolatey ripeness on the finish, which features major but thoroughly ripe tannins and great breadth. Philippe Guigal noted that the '03s finished even drier than the '02s and '01s, at less than one gram per liter of residual sugar. So the extraordinary sweetness of these wines simply reflects the freakish ripeness of the fruit. "

2007: 96 Points - James Molesworth, Wine Spectator: "Exhibits gorgeous aromas of warm tea cake, black tea and singed mesquite, followed by dense but silky structure that carries alluring plum, blackberry and licorice flavors through the very lengthy finish, where a sanguine edge echoes for added length. This has power, but it's more about guile and perfume. Best from 2012 through 2025. 417 cases made. "
