    ($175) Deep ruby. Fresh raspberry and boysenberry aromas complicated by floral and roasted herb accents. Silky in texture, with deep, jammy dark fruit flavors and subtle bracing acidity. Impressively fresh for the vintage, finishing sweet and very long.

    A wine I've been lucky enough to have numerous times recently, the 2003 Cote Rotie Chateau d'Ampuis is an off-the-hook effort that gives up plenty of plum sauce, smoked duck, licorice, tar, vanilla bean and violet aromas and flavors. Never acidified, it has awesome freshness and focus to go with full-bodied richness, a hedonistic texture and a blockbuster-styled finish. While it's not for those craving delicate-styled aromas and textures, I think it's a gorgeous effort that will continue to drink nicely over the coming decade or more.

    Even though there's loads of fig, mocha and spice up front, this is really holding back, with a dense core of tar, black licorice, espresso and bittersweet cocoa held in check by some serious grip. The minerality is also there, and this should blossom in the cellar. 1,500 cases made.

    Killer wine. Velvety with a huge explosion of flavor on the back end. Really really impressive.

Marcel Guigal - the so-called "pivot" of the Cote-Rotie appellation - is both an owner and negociant, and vinifies over 40% of all Cote-Rotie. His father, Etienne, started out quite modestly in 1946, and over the next decades the company has grown to encompass all that is best in the Rhone Valley. Not only known for the massive hits in Hermitage and Cote-Rotie, the Guigal name is synonymous with quality all along the scale, from the humble Cotes-du-Rhone to the Big Three - La Landonne, La Mouline and La Turque.
