International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 106

($200) Bright medium ruby. Griotte cherry, roasted herbs, pepper and brown spices on the nose. Tightly wound but also quite suave, with penetrating black fruit and licorice flavors. Very fresh and precise. Finishes firm and extremely long, with slow-building, pure, fruit-driven flavor.

Jancis Robinson Author: Julia Harding MW

7% Viognier. 42 months in 100% new barriques. 400 c/s. La Turque first bottled 1985. Deep garnet core with a pinkish rim. Velvety sweet and sweetly spiced. Smells expensive. Lots of oak spice but it doesn't overwhelm the fruit. Opens up to a lovely perfume. Dry and firm and tannins catches around the side of your mouth at first and then make your mouth water. A baby. Taut and finely structured. Refined and very long. Long, sweet aftertaste. Really mouthwatering but I think it will get smoother. (JH)

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 140

The 1998 Cote Rotie La Turque may end up being a perfect wine. Its smoky black fruits intermixed with licorice, roasted meats, cassis, and flowers create an explosive, exotic perfume. The wine reveals considerable tannin, immense structure, and potentially legendary depth as well as intensity.

Wine Spectator Author: Per-Henrik Mansson

Very impressive. Intense, tannic red that won't disappoint. Packed with smoke, charred wood, tar, black truffles, cassis and other interesting aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, and rich in ripe tannins, it turns up the volume on the long, fresh finish. 400 cases made.

Opaque in color with cedar and tobacco on the nose. Dark fruit ( rasberry ) on the palate fades to a 30 second finish. This is a great Guigal LaLA. Terrific.
