Whether Guigal and its stupendous La Mouline vineyard are pleased by the name, I don't know. Deep, intense crimson; this takes the Spinifex '12 shiraz trio onto an altogether different and higher level, black fruits the core of the profound bouquet and full-bodied palate with a tsunami of fruit, licorice, leather, verjuice, savoury/foresty tannins and oak. Drink to 2052.

Improbably, takes the B?te Noir onto another level of depth, richness and complexity, although the flavours are in the same generic style family. It has harmony and supreme balance to its array of black fruits, black pepper and savoury backbone. Quite simple: cellar this for as long as you can, and drink the B?te Noir in the interim. Drink to 2040.

Slightly more colour than Bete Noir; the fragrant bouquet is more lifted and fruit-focused, the elegant, medium-bodied palate with impeccable balance and length, the tannins very fine. Shiraz. Drink to 2030.

95 Points James Halliday

Very different to the B?te Noir, with an effusive and supple array of juicy red and black fruits on the medium-bodied palate; there are ample oak and fluffy tannins to add texture, but it's the fruit that does the talking. The name is not a play on Guigal's La Mouline, but (minus the 'La') is French for crafty or cunning. Drink to 2030.

Good purple-red, although not particularly vibrant; a very rich and complex wine, texture and structure excellent; the bouquet is aromatic and the full-bodied palate has abundant fruit, but this blend (Shiraz/Viognier) best delivers vibrancy in cool climates. Drink to 2023.
