1988 E. Guigal Cote Rotie La Turque - 100 Pts!

E. Guigal is one of the most notable wine producers in the Rhône Valley. It was founded in 1946 by Etienne Guigal in Ampuis, a village near the famous roasted slopes of the Côte Rôtie,with a long history of winegrowing, and today has plots throughout the Rhône. Guigal makes wines from classic Mediterranean varieties like Grenache, Mourvèdre, Viognier and Roussanne, although the focus has always been on Syrah and Côte Rôtie.

The company's sizeable holdings run the length of the valley, encompassing Saint-Joseph, Hermitage, Gigondas, Condrieu and Chateauneuf-du-Pape, making wines in each, as well as a couple of Côte du Rhône wines. However, Guigal's most notable wines – La Landonne, La Turque and La Mouline – are all from Côte Rôtie, and are some of the most sought-after wines in the region. In fact, all three have had 100-point Robert Parker scores for multiple vintages.

Rating RP100 - 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
