1988 E. Guigal Cote Rotie La Turque - 100 Pts!
Deep purple-colored with grilled meat and smoky barbecue-like aromas beginning to emerge along with lavishly ripe scents of black plums and cassis the 1988 La Turque is not quite as suppressed aromatically as La Mouline. This thick unctuously textured full-bodied monster wine is close to reaching its plateau of drinkability. The wine exhibits awesome concentration terrific purity and amazingly no evidence of the 42 months it spent in 100% new oak casks. Very full and rich and potentially the longest-lived La Turque yet made this wine should be legendary. RP
