  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 96

    ($375) Saturated ruby. Powerful scents of dark berries, cherry preserves, Indian spices and violet. Showing more richness than the Mouline, with chewy, smoky blackberry and mulberry flavors and a string jolt of peppery spice on the back end. Really clings to the palate, finishing with strong notes of candied violet and lush dark berries. This has gained richness and breadth in the last year and will repay extended cellaring.

    Extremely dense and reserved, with only hints of coffee, bittersweet chocolate and charred apple wood leaking out from the core of melted fig, black licorice, Lapsang souchong tea and currant preserve notes. Still chewy, with formidable tannins framing the nearly endless finish, this could be the hardest of the trio to break in while cellaring.

  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 100

    The 2005 Cote Rotie la Turque is utterly profound, and a desert island wine if there ever was one. Crème de cassis, blackcurrants, chocolate, barbecued meats and bacon fat all literally soar from the glass of this full-bodied, structured, perfectly balanced Cote Rotie that doesn’t have a hair out of place. It’s just now at the early stages of drinkability and will benefit from 2-4 more years in the cellar, and keep for 2-3 decades after that.

    Very solid colour. Lots going on underneath. Very, very long. So solid! More acid than the other La Las. Masses of concentration and really dry - never mind a wife or mistress, this one is not even a friend at the moment. SO drying. I assume it will get there in the end, but stash it away! Very firm and for the very long term.

  • 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.
