I thought this was a Guigal LaLa but to my shame didn’t recognise it, despite drinking it just three nights previously! 'It’s the context,' Peter Gago said, consolingly and certainly this wine seemed so much lighter when served alongside the heft of a range of Granges than it did when served with no more preamble than Krug 1990 – and a Jaboulet Les Jamelles 1971 Côte Rôtie afterwards.Essence of Syrah on the nose. Lively fresh and dry (as opposed to sweet) – much racier and subtler than I was expecting from having read other tasting notes on this wine. The tannins are already nicely resolved. High toned minerals – dry and refreshing – very clean and brisk.

The 1990 La Turque offers an opaque purple color, and an overwhelming perfume of jammy black cherries, cassis, toast, and minerals. With its sweet, generous, incredibly harmonious personality, it is an unforgettable wine.With sweet tannin, low acidity, and one of the most velvety-textured, decadently rich palates I have encountered, this fabulous wine has a finish that lasts more than a minute. Last tasted 7/96.

Beautiful and lush. The floral, vanilla and blueberry flavors are distinctive and concentrated; if the oak is dominant now, the fruit is ripe and lively. --Guigal Cote-Rotie vertical. 300 cases made.

This is an amazing wine but definitely better shared over dinner with several people. It must also be opened for a good hour before drinking and possibly decanted to moderate the medicinal and musty tones. A heavy meat dish would be best. Definitely not a wine for sipping with cheese. Should be shared with others who like Cote Rotie.
